Ty Lawson Ready to Play Overseas During NBA Lockout

by July 13, 2011


Time to add the Nuggets’ Ty Lawson to the list of players ready to hop across the pond to play should the lockout cost the NBA any games. From the Denver Post: “Lawson is not only seriously thinking about making a similar decision, he said he would definitely play overseas if the NBA lockout proves to be as long as many of the predictions. ‘If they say we’re definitely going to be locked out in November, I’m going to go over there until the season starts or for the whole year,’ Lawson said. The guard, who finished his second season with the Nuggets, averaging 11.7 points, 4.7 assists, 2.6 rebounds and 1.0 steals, said it won’t take long to survey the landscape and make his move. He’s fond of exploring playing opportunities in Italy. ‘Yeah, go over to Italy, chill out for a little bit,’ Lawson said. ‘I haven’t been there before, so it would be a new experience.’ He says he hasn’t yet been approached by a team.”
