Add Carlos Arroyo to the long list of players who are sick and tired of sitting around while nobody does anything to try and resolve the NBA lockout.

Arroyo, a free agent whose NBA future is kind of hanging in a environment of nothingness thanks to no league activity, told the website El Nuevo Dia (thank goodness for Google Translate, by the way) that he is currently being courted by some clubs overseas, including teams in Spain.

"There are offers," said Arroyo while also admitting that he intends to wait and see if there is any progress to the NBA labor situation.

Let me clear this one up for you, Carlos. Go to Spain. Just do it. Don't waste your time sitting here and waiting for absolutely nothing to happen between the owners and players, especially if you're seriously considering taking one of these offers. There hasn't been a real labor discussion since the lockout started and the only NBA news we hear on a daily basis are stories about players going overseas.

This isn't exactly a new rodeo for Arroyo anyway. He's already had an overseas stint in Spain as well as another one in Israel after establishing himself in the NBA. Being comfortable won't be an issue for him. Of course, Arroyo wouldn't talk about the details about the offers and my tune could change should they not have any opt-out clauses. The Celtics need bodies in a desperate way and I wouldn't mind having a smart, veteran point guard coming off the bench. But these guys have to do what they have to do.

Have I mentioned how much I hate the lockout?
