A day after Gilbert Arenas was sentenced to 30 days in a halfway house for bringing guns into the locker room, Wizards team president Ernie Grunfeld reaffirmed that the All-Star guard will be back with Washington next season.

Grunfeld told reporters before the team's game against Utah on Saturday that the Wizards did not plan to void Arenas' contract.

“I think people forget that he's still one of the best players in this league,” Grunfeld says.

Arenas avoided jail time for the offense, instead receiving a sentence that also includes two years of probation and 400 hours of community service.

Grunfeld says he has not talked to Arenas recently, although he spoke to Arenas' father.

Washington has lost 14 straight games.
