Adrian Wojnarowski reports Rajon Rondo and Kendrick Perkins want to play together should the lockout kill the entire season:
Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo and Oklahoma City Thunder center Kendrick Perkins, close friends, have been discussing the possibility of playing together overseas, and have had representatives inquiring on the possibilities, sources said.
Rondo and Perkins are interested in playing in higher-paying countries, such as Italy, Spain and Russia, sources said. There’s no deal in the works, and it’s unclear if there’s even a team that could financially put together the kind of contracts it would take to lure the players.
If they really wanted to play together, they'd have to sacrifice some money. Since neither is hurting for cash, it might happen. Playing on a strange team in a foreign country would be a lot more fun, if you're best friend was with you.
The news surrounding the lockout remains grim:
Agents and players are rapidly coming to terms with the reality that hopes for ending the lockout – and saving the season – are bleaker than ever. Ownership sources told Yahoo! Sports there’s a consensus among the group to let the players miss another round of checks on Dec. 1 and further test the resolve of the 450-plus players. Owners will soon review the players’ lawsuits filed against the league in California and Minnesota. More suits brought by the players could still be on the way.
I can't believe these bastards are taking away our season.
