Big money in European hoops

Here's another example of European competition for NBA players, in this case Warriors center Anris Biedrins:
The Warriors' chief competition for Biedrins might have come from overseas. Former Stanford swingman Josh Childress, who spent the last four seasons with the Atlanta Hawks, recently signed a lucrative contract to play in Greece next season, and Duffy said the interest in Biedrins outside the NBA was substantial.
He said Rade Filipovich, Duffy's main international representative, "was inundated with calls" from European clubs.
"It was to the point where we were going to begin negotiating with them," Duffy said.
He said preliminary offers in the neighborhood of $10 million a year were being mentioned by overseas clubs.
