MANILA, Philippines – Former NBA All-Star point guard Gilbert Arenas is very enthusiastic about his upcoming career after he agreed to sign for China basketball superstar Yao Ming’s Shanghai Sharks.

Contrary to recent rumors, Arenas said he was not simply hired by team owner Yao Ming and had to audition just like any other player.

Arenas is part of a recent wave of former NBA stars who considered playing for the China Basketball Association club.

Earlier this year, Tracy McGrady joined the Qingdao Eagles, and last year, Stephon Marbury teamed up with the Beijing Ducks and helped them win the CBA championship. -- Mornings @ ANC, November 21, 2012
