Former Weber St. Player Lance Allred
Interesting article in the Salt Lake Tribune about former Weber St. player Lance Allred and his travails playing overseas. His message to NBA players thinking of making the leap: Make sure you know what you are getting yourselves into.
From the article:
A few years ago, Allred signed a deal to play in Italy for $160,000. "I didn’t receive a dime of it, even though it was FIBA-guaranteed. The team folded two months later. It’s such a crapshoot."
