Grizzlies Rudy Gay, Zach Randolph May Opt To Play Overseas

Tuesday November 15th, 2011

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.
