Cats' Boykins latest NBA player to bolt for Europe, signs $3.5 million deal

After a decade in the NBA, unrestricted free agent Earl Boykins has joined the growing legion of veteran role players unable to resist the lure of European riches.

Boykins' Cleveland-based agent, Mark Termini, announced Tuesday that Boykins has signed a one-year contract with Italy's Virtus Bologna. The deal, according to Termini, is worth more than $3.5 million for the 2008-09 season, which would make the 5-foot-5 guard Italy's highest-paid player.

And people think the NBA is in trouble. The NBA is in trouble b/c teams overseas are drastically overpaying for some of our bench players?

I loved watching Boykins play.

He gave it his all every play. :vomit:

Sad to see him go, but he is getting paid now.

I forgot this guy was in the league. Wasn't he a free agent or something after he left Denver? After that, I never heard what happened to him.

The guy may be undersized, but he's a hellluva scorer.

His scoring cannot be questioned, but just his defense.
