I hate to keep arguing this, but the scenario you're talking about doesn't seem like a definite.
I mean if a team doesn't have a roster spot for him, and he refuses to go overseas, then they basically have to cut him? He is then free to go to whatever other team DOES have a spot for him. If he's a good player, and people see that in the summer league, there is going to be a team that picks him up. Yes?
