<div class="quote_poster">TheHighness Wrote</div><div class="quote_post">He left 3 million on the table to play for a team that has 3 more wins and he's happy I highly doubt that. He opted out in hopes to resign with Orlando for a few more million (5-6/yrs range) He wouldn't drop his asking price so Orlando signed Keith Bogans to replace him after that his only option was to sign for the minimum and hope he can raise his stock and get a bigger contract next year. To say that he's happy with that would be foolish not only is he making far less money but his role isn't as big as it was with Orlando.</div> Are you serious? The only reason they signed Deshawn Stevenson was so they can allow Jared Jeffries to go and giving him up was a sizeable loss for the team on defense. He wasn't much of an offensive player, but he started because of his size, he hustled, and was a big man on the boards. Deshawn quickly came in and provided a shooting touch for the Wizards and provides defense, which Arenas doesn't bring often. Also, how can you not say he's happy? He's not miserable at all, I've been reading Ivan Carter (Wizards beat writer) and he's been writing about how the locker room always gets along and talked about Deshawn's status in DC early in the season and how glad he was to be here.
