Washington Wizards: Gilbert Arenas says he deserves to be punished for bringing guns to the locker room. The suspended Wizards guard told Esquire magazine he wasn't using "longevity thinking" when he took out four guns in what he says was an attempt to play a prank on teammate Javaris Crittenton in December. Arenas pleaded guilty to a felony gun charge in January and will be sentenced next week. He's been suspended until the end of the season by the NBA.

Phoenix Suns: Assigned first-round draft pick Earl Clark to the Iowa Energy of the NBA Development League. The 6-foot-10 Clark was the 14th overall pick in the draft out of Louisville but has not been part of Phoenix's regular rotation. He has appeared in 45 games, averaging 2.7 points and 1.1 rebounds in 7.6 minutes per contest.
