Rudy Gay is the latest big-time NBA player to go down with a major injury.
Recent percentages show that it's fairly uncertain how a player will return.
Some have had success, and others—like Jonny Flynn last season—come off of rehab looking like a completely different player.
Gay might be the perfect fit for a rehab stint overseas.
He tweeted a couple of times about playing overseas. First, he said "I would Play overseas if the lockout is prolonged for sure!" He followed up by tweeting "NBA was always a dream of mine but I also love playing pro basketball."
Gay could have the luxury of a rehab assignment like recovering players get before going back to the big leagues.
He can go overseas, get his body physically ready and knock the rust off.
Once the lockout ends, he can return to the youthful Memphis Grizzlies right where he left off.
