Waiting.

It's what NBA players, owners, and fans are doing as this lockout continues. Will it end in the near future remains to be seen but as each day passes, some NBA players will think twice about heading overseas to lace up their sneakers and hit the hardwood.

One such player is Oklahoma City Thunder's Kevin Durant who recently said the players should not take the most recent offer if it's not a good deal and went on to state if the lockout doesn't end soon, he could sign an overseas contract as soon as next week.

“I’m right on the fence with playing overseas and I’m about to jump over,” Durant said in a phone interview from Josh Howard’s celebrity game in Dallas.

And one of those teams who might be in the running for Durant's services is Spanish club Valencia which also is the team for San Antonio Spurs draftee Nando De Colo.

He’s weighing offers from Maccabi Tel Aviv in Israel, Valencia in Spain and BBC Bayreuth in Germany.

Well aside from the fact if Durant does play overseas, it probably would mean the lockout continues, but it would also mean wonders De Colo's development.

He would be paired with one of the league's premier players and learning what he can from Durant can only mean positive things for the Spurs should De Colo come to the NBA.

De Colo is a point guard and seeing how an NBA big man likes to receive the ball in the post, how super athletic NBA players are regardless of size, and much more can only be good for his game.
