Agent Zero is no more. If Gilbert Arenas plays again for the Washington Wizards, he will not wear his signature No. 0. The team confirmed on Thursday that Arenas has submitted the paperwork to have his jersey number changed to No. 6 next season.

Arenas has worn No. 0 ever since he played college basketball at Arizona. Arenas said he wore the number because he was told he wouldn't see any playing time at that the storied program.

The No. 6 is significant because Arenas's birthday is Jan. 6 - which is also the day that the NBA gave Arenas an indefinite suspension for his behavior after it was revealed that he brought guns to the locker room at Verizon Center in a dispute with teammate Javaris Crittenton. Arenas was suspended for the remainder of the season on Jan. 27 and faces sentencing in two weeks after pleading guilty to a felony gun charge.

Cleveland Cavaliers all-star forward LeBron James also filed the paperwork to change his jersey number to No. 6 from No. 23, claiming that it is out of deference to Michael Jordan. Mike Miller currently wears No. 6, which was previously worn by Antonio Daniels.

New nickname should be Alec Trevelyan, agent 006 in James Bond. We already know he can tote heat and he likes to turn on his "agents" (teammates) like Trev.

League should stat a rule that you CANT change your number at all unless you are traded or signed to a team that has it retired or someone using it or you can voluntarily change it if a player wiht same number is joining the team.

Is absolutely sad they do change their numbers just because of the sales boost it means.

Thats how materialistic has the league become and it sucks.

Ernie Grunfeld probably told Gilbert that he'll probably only play 6 minutes when he come back from suspension.

It makes sense for him to change numbers because he needs to make up for the money he lost this year.

Lemme get 1 more gun reference before this ish closes...

He wanted to be 9 to represent his 9mm glock, but he couldn't so he flipped it upside down and went with 6.

ok the 6th was also the day he was suspended??? do you really want to remember that? why not be like Kobe and change the number to try and forget the past. Arenas may be one of the dumbest people in sports

Maybe its cause I live in NY, but I thought sensible people stop wearing jerseys in 2002.

Real Mature. I'm pretty sure doing moms and getting laid has nothing to do with the NBA and Gilbert Arenas changing his #.

Lame.

Why change your jersey number? His jersey number inspired a bunch of people to wear #0 to prove doubters wrong.

Too little, too late. Thats if this is some attempt at mending wounds.

And yeah, his jersey resembled his road to the NBA. But I guess the whole "Agent" part sends the wrong message.
