08:07 AM ET 07.27 | Houston's first-round pick Marcus Morris is entertaining the idea of playing overseas. With the NBA in the midst of a lockout, many players from around the league are at least considering playing outside the United States. "It's intriguing," said Tony Dutt, Morris's agent, in an interview with FOX 26 Sports. "If the right offer came along, we would look at it. Morris was the 14th overall pick in the June NBA Draft. "We both agreed I would send a bunch of stuff to teams over there," Dutt said. "We haven't received anything that makes sense at this point. "There is nothing pending."

These guys should've stayed in school. This is stupid. If you're a newly drafted guy, and can't play in the NBA what was the point in coming out, just to have to play overseas? You might as well have stayed put and continued with your education both on and off the court. Am I alone in this opinion?

I agree.

Marcus ain't getting paid right now. Go sign that deal, and take Markieff with you.

dude he came out after his junior year. its not gonna help his game playing against the same level competition for four years. he would improve his game more playing in europe than spending another year at kansas.
