Personally I think they won't because it depends more on their teams and I think they won't let them go. Sad

European players or players that have already played in Europe, will come over to play in Europe if there is a lock out. I don't think that the American topplayers will come and play in Europe

Brandon Jennings has already played in Europe but I mean guys like Kobe Bryant, Lebron James etc. will not come over to play for a European team. There teams in the NBA won't let them and I don"t think that any team is willing to pay the salary that those guys want

Songaila would probably return in any case. This season he's benched literally and I believe some solid Euroleague teams still would like to have him. Rudy wouldn't mind to go to Barsa I guess.

Lock out can bring many good players here. Just remember 1999 when Žalgiris got red hot T. Edney. I couldn't believe it when I heard it (I was following NBA very closely back than) and I knew how good he can be, but there was no brag from fans (no-one basically knew him). So basically, if there will come more NBA players and will get their chance (we know many players are warming bench in NBA) in Europe, there might be some surprises.

Tyus Edney wasn't a very good player in the NBA. In Europe he was good but in the NBA he wasn't. European players maybe will come back but the stars players will not move to Europe

He was solid point guard, specially playing for Kings. And I think a little bit underrated. On other hand, NBA always has tones of options.

It was his dream since a child to play for Milano I think. It is not just about the money for him. He has said for many years he wants to play in Europe specifically Italy.

Here is an old article from 2000 about Kobe.

Bryant becomes new co-owner of professional basketball club

With his multimillion-dollar endorsement deals and his All-Star NBA status, Kobe Bryant, 21, just seems primed to become the next ambassador of American basketball. But it's his off-the-court moves that are attracting more international attention for the six-foot seven-inch Los Angeles Lakers guard. In a recent deal, Bryant became co-owner of an Italian league team, making him possibly the first athlete to acquire interest in a franchise while still active in the sport.

Bryant's 50% interest in Milan, Italy-based Olimpia Milano of the Italian Professional Basketball League (IPBL), allows him to share ownership responsibilities with current Olimpia owner and Italian business magnate Pasquale Caputo. Bryant's father, Joe Bryant, was named executive vice president of the franchise. Bryant is said to have chipped in $1 million of the more than $4 million reportedly spent to close the deal.

NBA regulations prohibit current players from owning a piece of its ball clubs, so the younger Bryant became interested in the overseas opportunity when approached by Caputo, said his agent, Arn Tellem, of SFX Sports.

"Our game plan has been to broaden Kobe beyond being an endorser of products. He's always wanted to become an entrepreneur," says Tellem. Bryant will spend some of the off-season with the team, while his father, who will be in Milan for about two weeks each month, is more involved in the organization's management.

Bryant's combined endorsement deals with companies like Adidas, Spalding, Nintendo, Columbia Records and GTE are said, by some, to rival his six-year, $70.8 million Lakers contract. His international dealings are likely to bring more global sponsors to Olimpia, which could likely benefit both the franchise and the IPBL.

Bryant said his decision to add partner to his resume was both a sound business move as well as a fulfilling addition to his own entrepreneurial aspirations. "I loved growing up in Italy and I've always had a special place in my heart for the country and the people," Bryant says. "So when my NBA career is done, if all goes well, I'll be over there."
