But i'm not too surprised about this. People made a huge deal over Childress, even though I like his game, he really wouldn't have been anything other than a good 6th man on a playoff contending team. I never thought anyone who is a legit NBA starter with All-Star potential would even give the Euro League consideration. Even if you heard them saying they would, I doubt it's true.

Until Europe signs an All-Star away from the NBA, that is when I'll be worried.

I agree, any NBA starter can get what ever money they want within the NBA.No legit NBA star will go to Europe IMO.
