With big-bucks, multi-year deals recently drawing NBA players like Josh Childress and Carlos Arroyo to play international ball overseas, could Carlos Boozer be drawn away by foreign interests? Boozer, who is eligible to opt out of the final season of his six-year, $68-million contract next offseason, said he would be open to all offers - including with a foreign team. "As a business decision, we definitely would have to look at it," said Boozer, in Beijing as a second-time Olympian. "But it doesn't mean that you're on the next flight out." He said he would "absolutely" consider the possibility, "if my wife was down with it and the money was right."

They don't have enough money too! J-Chill is the highest paid player in Euro and he makes 10 mill a year. Boozer demands at least 15. Possibly 20. No way it happens.

don't you see a pattern?
these guys are all from the USA team. they're all gonna say the same thing, and scare David Stern into lifting the salary cap. it's their plot they made during one of their practices. If I was to guess, probably Tayshaun Prince planned it all, because he's such a greedy bastard.

How many of these threads do we need? Everyone on Team USA is going to get asked these questions and they all are going to have the same response, "I'll consider it". It's no big deal until somebody really big leaves. Childress isn't a big time player in the NBA by any stretch of the imagination.

Of course a player isn't going to say he won't go overseas, even if he has no intention whatsoever of doing so.

If he comes out & says that, he then loses leverage in contract negotiations.

And he also makes himself less appealing overseas, which especially wouldn't be a good idea right now for someone who is representing our country in the Olympics.

Childress is not the highest player in Europe because that's how much they can pay him. That's how much he's worth to that team. Don' tell me that a billionaire can play Lebron only $10 million per year. Stop saying that Europe cannot pay these players that much because they can, will they I don' know. Depends on the owners, fans, and of course the players. Get your facts straight before you misinform others.
