 Amare, Melo Going Overseas? - ESPN Video - ESPN

Roger Mason Jr. said his cell phone was blowing up when the news broke about Deron Williams' agreement to play in Turkey next season if the NBA lockout isn't resolved by September.

While the Nets can only stand by helplessly as their cornerstone -- who has an opt-out in 2012 -- trots off to Turkey, the Knicks can't do anything about it, either, if Carmelo Anthony or Amar'e Stoudemire have a similar interest in playing overseas.

Mason Jr., a vice president with the players' union, told us today that both Knicks stars have contacted him about Williams' situation and inquired about the rules and insurance information.

Would the Knicks' biggest stars really consider going over to Europe if the NBA season is compromised?

"I can see anybody doing it," said Mason Jr. said. "This is what people have to understand. It's definitely about earning a living, but we've already been so blessed, a lot of guys love the game and want to be able to compete . . . I've talked to a lot of the star players, Chris Paul, Amar'e, Melo, I think that those guys are open-minded to everything."

But it is less likely that players with large contracts such as Anthony, who signed a three-year, $65M extension in February, and Stoudemire, whose five-year, $99.7M contract isn't fully insured, would take the risk to play overseas during a lockout.

Stoudemire's agent, Happy Walters, told Newsday that Stoudemire "is not even considering something like this right now."

Mason Jr. admitted that Williams' move comes a bit early in the process. "First-things-first, though, we want to see if we can make a deal," he said. "And then if that doesn't happen, then I think the next step will be guys exploring those options."

as a knicks fan and season ticket holder i don't feel to good about this. Amare is still banged up with his back and knee and Melo wont go and have surgery on his arm i believe...some one might have to look in on that one for me i heard something in that nature on 1050 espn ny. This also cant be good for the nba lockout.

I'd like to see several all star caliber players go and play overseas.

what sucks is all the players overseas that would have their spots automatically taken by all-stars. Not to mention, there doesn't have to be a draft. They could basically go make their own damn dream team overseas.

damn, what about the d-league dudes? no season for them?

meaning they will wait it out until they get what they want......the value could go to zero but they want what the NHL owners got.


Do you think they became billionaires owning a nba team?


They could still make money hosting other events in the ARENA...they don't care


NBA only accounts for 41 dates out of 365 for the arenas they own with the team.

if the top 15 players in the league bolted overseas the owners would faint
players are pus*y tho, they think like employees and not like bosses
this is why sports will always be dominated by blacks and owned by whites (which is why all white ppl support the owners)
