Posted by Neil on November 29, 2011

When the NBA lockout was resolved last weekend, it was time for players who went overseas to return stateside and prepare for the 2012 season. Well, except for these guys, who failed to secure opt-out clauses when signing with foreign clubs:

  1. Nuggets look to be hit hard by this.

  2. I'm really surprised to see Kenyon Martin's name on here. He's really the only name that casual fans might recognize from this list. The Suns will certainly miss Brooks, but other than the Nuggets (who are definitely going to miss Martin, Smith, AND Chandler), I can't see any other team being too broken up about this.

  3. @Luke: Dude look at the Celtics, losing Nenad Krstic leaves them with a decent hole in their frontcourt, last year he only averaged 8 points and 5 rebounds but he also averaged just over 22 minutes per game in 71 games. Also the Hawks; they're losing Hilton Armstrong and Josh Powell two solid bench players.

  4. Man, th nuggets are definitely not gonna do well, they lost 3 guys that average 25 minutes per game! huge holes for them, wouldn't be suprised if they miss the playoffs with Melo gone and the gaps in their rotation.

  5. Armstrong and Powell are not "solid bench players." They both suck. I hope they stay overseas forever so the Hawks can't play them.

  6. Denver is so fucked.
