DALLAS -- Gilbert Arenas is in trouble with the NBA again.

Arenas wrote on his Twitter page Wednesday that he was fined for comments he made on the social media site. NBA spokesman Tim Frank confirmed the Orlando Magic guard had been fined but declined to give the amount or the reason because it was not publicly announced.

In a series of postings on his "agentzeroshow" page, Arenas made a joke, apologized to the ladies it may have offended and asked someone to message him the NBA's Twitter rules.

Arenas was suspended 50 games last season for carrying guns into the Washington Wizards' locker room. He was traded to Orlando this season.
