Memphis Grizzlies players Rudy Gay and Zach Randolph may consider playing overseas after the National Basketball Players association announced its plans to decertify and file anti-trust suits against the owners, The Commercial Appeal reports.
"If there's no season, I'm definitely going to explore going over the water," Randolph said. "This is horrible. I feel bad for the fans and players like myself who love to play. ... But I support the union. I want to play, but I stick by what they're doing."
The player’s union rejected the latest NBA proposal sparking possibilities of a canceled 2011-2012 season. The union is employing a similar tactic that the National Football League Players Association used during their labor disagreement. NFL players and owners were able to come to a new agreement while legal appeals were pending. The same scenario could occur in the case of the NBA.
