Bargs receiving lots of offers to play in Europe

Toronto Raptors forward Andrea Bargnani is "receiving a lot of offers to play in Europe," Sportando reports, but the 25-year-old native of Rome may end up with Montepaschi Siena in his homeland.

Sportando passes along a report by La Gazzetta dello Sport that Siena is "ready to make a big offer" for Bargnani when the NBA season is postponed, particularly if the team's rival, reigning Italian champion Olimpia Milano, brings back New York Knicks forward Danilo Galllinari.

Bargnani is currently playing for the Italian national team at Eurobasket and is considering "to extend his insurance even for the period after Eurobasket to get ready for a proposal to play overseas if he decides to play somewhere else during the lockout."

His game is better suited for the international game, just as is Kleiza's.

I think certain players' skills translate better in Europe than they would in the NBA... certain good NBA players would make mediocre Euroleague players and certain mediocre NBA players can be productive Euroleague guys. It's not a matter of talent alone.

It will be interesting to see how Sonny Weems performs. I'm actually pessimistic about him overseas because his game seems to better fit the NBA iso style. He will be a liability shooting 3s as well as passing the ball. I suppose his defense and fast break game will make-up some of his weaknesses.
