NBA Suspends Gilbert Arenas, Teammate for Rest of Season for Gun Incident

NBA commissioner David Stern has suspended Washington Wizards guards Gilbert Arenas and Javaris Crittenton for the remainder of the season for having guns in the locker room.

Saying possession of guns in the workplace "will not be tolerated," Stern delivered the punishment Wednesday after meeting with Arenas earlier in the day, turning his indefinite suspension into a suspension without pay.

Crittenton met with Stern on Tuesday and also was suspended without pay.

Arenas pleaded guilty Jan. 15 to a felony gun charge after an alleged confrontation with Crittenton in the Wizards' locker room at Verizon Center in Washington.

Arenas is scheduled to be sentenced March 26. He's in the second season of a six-year, $111 million contract.
