Re: David Stern: All NBA Players Can Sign In Europe If There Is A Lockout
This doesn't change the fact that the leagues are going to respect each others contracts. If FIBA starts poaching NBA players during a lockout, then the NBA will never honor FIBA contracts again. I doubt FIBA Basketball is looking to go to war with the NBA.
Now that I think about it, the NBA would probably love it if FIBA ignored their contracts and let a few guys play in Europe during a lockout. This would mean the NBA is free to poach players from around the world without worrying about their contracts.
