NBA Lockout: Maurice Evans, Vice President Of NBA Players' Union, Reportedly Considering Overseas Offers

Maurice Evans, a 32-year old small forward who last played for the Washington Wizards, is considering overseas offers from Spanish club Real Madrid and Turkish club Anadolu Efes, according to a report by Alex Kennedy of HoopsWorld. This is not significant on the surface, since Evans is a free agent and has seen his skills decline. However, it becomes significant because Evans is the vice president of the NBA Players Association. If he signs overseas, he will become the first Union representative to do so.

The fact that Evans is considering an overseas offer is potentially a bad sign for NBA lockout talks. Evans has been aggressive in discussing his displeasure with the owners' proposals, so it's not a huge surprise that he would look overseas. But while Evans is probably just trying to keep his options open, it doesn't show a huge vote of confidence in the possibility of a speedy resolution when the No. 2 man in the Union is considering moving overseas.
