The Scoop: Gibson said he was "flooded with calls" to sign 10-day contracts last month, but he hasn't worked out for any teams. "I just want to be 100 percent before I do any of that," Gibson said. "I'm not trying to just play. I want to play at a high level. That's what I miss." The 3-point specialist won't have fantasy appeal even if he does land a short-term contract this season.
New Orleans police say Gibson has turned himself in to face a second-degree battery charge. Police spokeswoman Remi Braden says he's accused of breaking another man's jaw with a punch during an argument at a nightclub about 5:15 a.m. on July 8.
The Scoop:Braden says Gibson surrendered Monday with his attorney, Ike Spears. Online court records show he was released on $20,000 bond. Spears wasn't immediately available for comment. Braden says Gibson's accuser is from St. Rose, about 25 miles from New Orleans. The unrestricted free agent played seven years for the Cleveland Cavaliers but missed most of last season with injuries.
