Is it Time to Give Up on Gilbert Arenas?

Orlando Magic reserve guard Gilbert Arenas is having the worst season of his career following the trade that brought him to Orlando. As a member of the Magic, Arenas is averaging 8.3 points, 4 assists, and 1 steal, on a dreaded 35.1% FG%.

The Breakdown
Since joining Orlando, Arenas has just been sliding lower and lower in our player ratings to the point where he's about to fall out of the top 150. He's averaging just 21.6 minutes per game and hasn't found any consistency to his stroke. At this point, fantasy owners in standard formats who drafted him in the middle rounds need to give up on him. Although he's getting paid big money, he hasn't even been the most valuable reserve on his team. There are likely better options available on the waiver wire.
