With a compromise to the NBA lockout nowhere in sight, many players have entertained the idea of going overseas. Some have already signed, some are looking for somewhere to go and others are playfully poking at the possibility.
We have already seen superstar guard Deron Williams jump ship to Turkey, along with New Jersey teammate Sasha Vujacic and Bucks forward Ersan Ilyasova. Other players such as Nenad Krstic, Timofey Mozgov and Chris Quinn bolted to Russia. Further talent in the likes of Nicolas Batum, Jordan Farmar, Hilton Armstrong and Von Wafer have packed their bags for France, Israel and Italy.
Until the owners reach a deal with the National Basketball Players Association, we could be watching more guys taking off overseas.
So in light of NBA players bringing their talents overseas, here is a team of the top overseas players who brought their talents to the NBA.
