Report: Brian Scalabrine Likely Headed to Europe to Play


Jul 2, 2011

Brian Scalabrine has a tendency to captivate NBA fans with his hustle. Now, the former Celtic could be taking his talents overseas.

With the NBA's future up in the air due to the current lockout, Scalabrine said that he might play in Europe next season, according to the Chicago Tribune.

"For me personally, if in the next 15 days it's still kind of like it is now, I'm just going to Europe and play," Scalabrine said. "The thing about that is you have to commit for the whole year and you have no out clauses whatsoever. I support the players and the union and want to see the [NBA] game stay great. But at the end of the day, with two years or so left of playing basketball, I'm not interested in watching billionaires fight. I just like the game too much. I like the camaraderie. I like to play. So why not do it in a great city in Europe and educate my family?"

Scalabrine played five seasons with the Celtics from 2005 to 2010 and appeared in 18 games last year with the Chicago Bulls.
