NBA players not taking serious look overseas yet
Question of the Day
Perhaps that accounted for the lack of defense Saturday night.
The blue team, Goodman League, won 170-167. Wall had 41 points, 12 assists and 11 rebounds. DeMarcus Cousins had 33 points and 15 rebounds. Gordon led the Knox team with 40 points and nine assists. All but three of the 16 players reached double figures.
The players said they aren’t even sure the league owners know what they want in a new deal.
“That’s what it seems like from what I’ve seen in the media and from what I hear,” Gordon said. “It’s going to take a collective agreement by everybody to get this thing settled.”
In the meantime, they’ll continue working on their own.
Hayward is going through his training at St.Vincent Sports Performance in Indy. Some are working in groups, and others are playing in games like this, where there are almost as many smiles as dunks. Teague plans to return to Atlanta next week, where he will continue playing pro am games.
But each player has his own primary concern.
Josh McRoberts, an Indiana native who played with the Pacers last season, is a free agent who hasn’t been able to negotiate a new deal. Shelvin Mack left Butler after his junior season, was selected by Washington in the second round of this year’s NBA draft and is still unsigned.
“It’s kind of tough,” Mack said. “We’ve got things like this so we can still work on our skills, but you’d really like to get back to work.”
For some players, that could come sooner _ if they decide to move overseas. Kobe Bryant has been offered a $6.7 million, one-season contract to play for the Italian team Virtus Bologna.
Gordon said that while he’s had offers, he’s not jumping at the chance and neither is D.J. White, the former Indiana star who now plays for Charlotte.
“I’ve really not thought much about it,” White said. “You really just want to work on your game and we’ll see what happens. It’s hard to put a time table (on deciding to play overseas).”
