Deron Williams, who just reportedly signed a deal to play in Turkey this fall if the NBA lockout isn't ended, may not be alone. According to Roger Mason, Jr., the vice president of the NBA players' union, plenty of other players—including stars like Chris Paul, Amar'e Stoudemire, and Carmelo Anthony—have also contacted him to ask about the logistics of playing overseas later this year.
"I can see anybody doing it," Mason Jr. said yesterday. "This is what people have to understand. It's definitely about earning a living, but we've already been so blessed, a lot of guys love the game and want to be able to compete...I've talked to a lot of the star players, Chris Paul, Amar'e, Melo, I think that those guys are open-minded to everything."
