If you look at the Warriors’ salary situation, it’s easy to see that Andris Biedrins is the one who’s going to get squeezed. Not so fast. A source close to the Warriors’ fifth-year center said European teams are hot and heavy after Biedrins. The Latvia native is drawing strong interest in a couple Russian clubs, according to the source, who added that teams are willing to sign him for three to five years for what amounts to more than $10 million a year.
This would be the best news for Biedrins’ in months. The only team with salary cap space that was reportedly interested in him, other than the Warriors, was Philadelphia. But the 76ers spent their cap money on Elton Brand. So leverage of a fat offer from overseas is Biedrins’ best hope of getting the money he wants from the Warriors, or anywhere in the NBA.

I think he'll probably stay with the Warriors, but overseas is a definate option. Unless they give him a nice deal, he'll probably walk.

Wow, another one.....

very interesting. :yawn:

Maybe more euros stay there, and we sign all of the native basketball players in the near future....

Not likely, but quite interesting to see how this works out. I see the D League suddenly becoming much more important.

The NBA could definitely expand the D-league and put more financial resources toward/in it. In this manner, players like Jennings could get decent deals to play for the D-League and even some media exposure if the NBA made a concerted effort to market it.

I think it would be successful and could keep some of these prospects within the borders of the NBA community.
