      Why would it be hilarious? I don't wnat him to sign because this might start a trend just like that high school guard signing over seas instead of going to Arizona

        Here's another article that shows players going overseas because of the low value of the american dollar and the tax free contracts in other contries.

        Read at the bottm starting with Brandon Jennings, and that was the name of the high school guard I couldn't think of in my previous post

          If they want to do that more power to them. All this shows is there are more opportunities for basketball players out there. Also they might be able to make more money overseas.

              Basketball is the fastest growing sport in the world. Good news to hear that Euro ball is improving.

                He's not actually considering it, he's just trying to scare Atlanta.

                  Does Atlanta even have that much more room to give him a bigger contract though, or else this "scare tactic" as you think it is fivas is useless... They still need to resign Josh Smith more importantly

                    Former Hawks swingman Josh Childress has signed with Olympiakos of Greece, a three-year, fully guaranteed contract worth far more than the $20 million initially believed to be his prize.

                        He was using it as a scare tatic, they weren't scared. He left.

                              No way, he'd lose millions in endorsements.
