Arenas changes mind on jersey, doesn't want No. 6

WASHINGTON (AP) — Agent Zero's search for a new number has taken a detour.

Gilbert Arenas wants to change his jersey to something other than No. 6.

New Washington Wizards owner Ted Leonsis revealed the news Thursday in his blog, but gave no other details.

Arenas has worn No. 0 since college, but it was announced in March he would be switching to No. 6 for the upcoming season. It's part of an image overhaul as he returns from a suspension and felony conviction for brining guns into the locker room.

Leonsis warned against reading too much into Arenas' change of heart, writing: "This isn't the Da Vinci Code." LeBron James also announced plans to switch to No. 6, but the Wizards have expressed no interest in signing the free agent from Cleveland.
