Agent Zero Has Left His Building

Four years after he left the arena, Agent Zero has finally left our area.

Aaron Wiener at the Washington City Paper reports that Gilbert Arenas sold his Great Falls, Va.-area mansion last week for $2.5 million. The seven-bedroom house was perhaps best known for the shark tank that Arenas added—a feature that’s since been removed, Wiener notes.

Like his Wizards career, Agent Zero’s real estate experience in D.C. ended poorly: it went on too long (he first tried to sell the house in 2012) and was too expensive (the house sold for about $1 million less than Arenas was asking for, and almost $400,000 less than he paid for it in 2003).

Arenas last played for the Wizards in December 2010, leaving town in a trade with the Orlando Magic, still shadowed by his infamous gun incident with Javaris Crittenton. However, he continues to draw checks from his last contract—now covered by the Magic, after they bought him out—and will get paid about $12 million per season for the next few years.

And for the record: I write this post with love, not scorn. The current Washington squad might end up as the best Wizards/Bullets team of the past four decades, but Gilbert at his best was better than all the other players along the way. Few had his shooting range or fearlessness; no one had his flare for the dramatic.

Long live Agent Zero … wherever he’s chosen to live.
