According to several sources, Arroyo, represented by Leon Rose, is
in talks to join either the Boston Celtics or the Milwaukee Bucks.
However, both teams told ESPN.com's Chris Sheridan that they have had
no contact whatsoever with Arroyo or his representatives.
Saturday, El Nuevo Dia, a newspaper out of Puerto Rico, reported that
Arroyo was close to signing a deal with the Chicago Bulls. According to
the report, the agreement would be for one season and $1 million.
Many of you may be asking – who the hell is Carlos Arroyo? He's a 6-2, 30-year old point guard who has played for 5 teams (Tor, Den, Utah, Det, Orl) in his 7-year NBA career. His career averages:
7 ppg, 3 apg, 43% FG, 31% 3 FG, 80% FT
Last season, he jumped overseas and played for Maccabi Tel Aviv. He averaged 14 ppg, 4 apg. Sounds like a serviceable back-up to me.
Arroyo says he won't reveal any more about his future plans until the FIBA tourney concludes (Sept 6th).
