Wizards' Arenas gets to wear No. 6
Goodbye, "Agent Zero." Gilbert Arenas is switching his uniform number.
The suspended Washington Wizards guard submitted paperwork to go from No. 0 to No. 6 and the NBA approved the change, league spokesman Tim Frank confirmed in an email to The Associated Press on Thursday.
Arenas has worn No. 0 since college, saying he picked that number because that's how many minutes people expected him to play at Arizona.
Last Friday was the deadline for NBA players to file for a new number.
Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James asked to switch from No. 23 to No. 6 next season.
Arenas was recently given a season-ending suspension by the NBA for bringing guns to the locker-room.
He pleaded guilty to a felony gun possession charge in January and is scheduled to be sentenced March 26.
