of ProBasketballNews.com reports
that Portland Trail Blazers guard Wesley Matthews -- through his agent, Lance Young -- is considering the overseas option should the ongoing NBA lockout bleed over into a work stoppage.
"I’m looking into different policies and products for insurance purposes to see how we can cover him if he does play in Europe," said Young, who reps for Octagon."If it looks like it’s going to be a long lockout, he’s going to play overseas."
"He just loves to play," Young told PBN. "We have to find a team in Europe in a good situation, with good money, and who’s going to give him a NBA out. That’s going to be the challenging part."
Haynes reports that Matthews, who wore a boot and underwent PRP therapy on his injured ankle
this summer, is said by Young to be "85 to 90 percent" recovered.
Unlike with forward Nicolas Batum, who was introduced by SLUC Nancy of France
yesterday, a Matthews flight abroad would probably cause a fair bit of indigestion over at One Center Court given his salary situation and the fact that he has yet to recover from a debilitating injury.
