Denver Nuggets: The asking price for Golden State Warriors point guard just turned free agent Gilbert Arenas has just gone up. Just ask his agent. "If you're asking whether a starting number of $7 million is enough to sign Gilbert Arenas, the answer is unequivocally no, it's not," Dan Fegan said in the Denver Post. "Gilbert has the same potential as any of the other top young point guards in the league, like Stephon Marbury, Steve Francis and Baron Davis," Fegan said at his downtown Denver hotel. "I want you to name a point guard at 20 years of age that puts up numbers that were better." Teams can begin negotiating with free agent on July 1 and can sign them as early as July 16.
