Once the new CBA is ratified, in a few days, NBA players under contract overseas will have to stop playing for their European teams. For the Nets that means Deron Williams, Jordan Farmar and Sundiata Gaines have likely played their final games. D-Will played Friday and Farmar and Gaines Saturday.

Like Williams, Farmar and Gaines scored wins in their final games for Maccabi Tel Aviv and B.C. Armia. Farmar, a fan favorite among Israelis had a double double in Maccabi's latest win in the Adriatic League, with 15 points and 13 assists, shooting 5-for-12 against Cedevita. Gaines played sparingly in Armia's 41-point blowout of TSU Tbilisi, scoring .12 points and handing out eight assists in 27 minutes.  The three are 39-5 in European play.

“This has been an experience which changed my life,” Farmar said on Saturday. “I feel like I’m a better person and a better player for this experience.”
