The Changing Calculus For International Players

Is Nenad Krstic, the last of a breed, an international player who actually gives up money to play in the NBA? Two top European prospects, Spain's Fran Vasquez and Croatia's Roko-Leni Ukic will make more money in Europe this year than they could have in the NBA. Draft Express asks if this trend continues, will players like Krstic simply bag the idea of playing in the US? Not an abstract question for the Nets who will probably face big-bucks European competition for Mile Ilic next summer.
