LOS ANGELES, CA (The Spread) – Can the Lakers find an answer to their offensive struggles in the form of Gilbert Arenas?

According to a report by Yahoo! Sports, the Laker officials attended a private workout for Arenas in Southern California. The report Sunday, citing anonymous sources, says the Lakers are considering the free-agent guard to boost their struggling offense.

The 30-year-old Arenas was let go by the Orlando Magic in the preseason under the league's amnesty provision. After he was traded to Orlando a year ago, Arenas made little impact in 49 games, averaging eight points. He played sparingly over the previous three seasons because of injuries and a 50-game NBA suspension for bringing a gun into the locker room.

The Lakers are currently sitting 2.5 games back of the Clippers in the Pacific with a 16-12 overall record. While they’re 11-2 at home this season, they’ve struggled on the road while amassing a 5-10 record. Even though they’ve won six out of their last four games, the Lakers have failed to crack the 100-point mark in each of their last six games.

The Lakers are currently 10/1 to win the 2012 NBA Finals after opening with odds of 11/2. They’re also 8/5 to win the Pacific Division and 9/2 to win the Western Conference this season.
