Former NBA/College Players Playing Overseas
 

 
Basketball has grown so much internationally over the past 20 years or so. While many European nations have had great players who reached the NBA, we are seeing the expansion to all continents now. There are thousands of players playing overseas in more than 100 countries who used to play ball in the USA. Among them are NBA veterans, former NBA players & draft picks, ex-major college stars & many players who entered the draft early and didn't get picked.

I've been researching for a while and put together a little list of some of the more notable players and where in the world they are playing now.

Amazing list. Sticky this. Sad that Samhan didn't pan out. Oh and

MAHMOUD ABDUL-RAUF

He's still playing? A lot of vets on here like the O'Bannons. Overseas hoops is a good career.

Just because they playing off sea doesn't mean they are whack. They probably just didnt like the contract the NBA was offering. Being overseas>>>>>> being in the USA

A lot of these guys could still sit the bench or possibly crack an NBA rotation but most do it for the playing time and a chance to be a star somewhere else. The Euroleague is no joke, the top talent in the world plays in that tourney every year and you'll see cats go to the draft that do well for those teams like Ricky Rubio did in 09. The Italian, French, German, Turkish & Spanish leagues are highly competive among other countries. Tiago Splitter who the Spurs finally got to come over was the MVP of the Spanish League & Finals MVP. Mucho talent.

I'm also working on a list of draft picks from the last X amount of years and where they are playing now. A lot of these guys want to play in the NBA but hope to be drafted by the right team and choose to stay overseas and be on the top of the game there. Again, Rubio's an example. If he was taken by the Knicks he'd be in the NBA k!llin it right now but since Minnesota drafted him, he's hooked up with Regal FC Barcelona in Spain who won the Euroleague last year and has a sick a.ss roster featuring that features former draft picks Kosta Perovic, Fran Vazquez, Erazem Lorbek plus Juan Carlos Navarro, Pete Mickael & Terence Morris.

Other guys, as someone above pointed out, just are playing for a paycheck in a nice country they enjoy spending time in. Through my research I even found out that Scottie Pippen played a few times in Finland & Sweden in 2008 just to make a quick 60 grand. But guys really can make good careers by playing overseas and some get the chance to come back to the NBA later on if they so choose. A lot of the summer league rosters each year are filled with guys who have been playing overseas and every once in a while someone will stick.

I know Marbury's in China but didn't see him on an active roster so he might not have signed yet or I just didn't have an updated list for China.
