Agent: Durant Would Consider Playing Overseas

Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The agent for Kevin Durant says the Oklahoma City Thunder star would consider playing overseas if the NBA lockout continues.

Agent Aaron Goodwin tells SI.com that "if the opportunity presents itself and the lockout persists," Durant would look into overseas playing opportunities.

Durant's spokeswoman, Mary Ford, confirmed Goodwin's statement to The Associated Press on Tuesday. Neither Ford nor Goodwin mentioned specifics about what those opportunities might be.

Durant is in China for a promotional tour. He told the AP before the lockout started that NBA players are willing to sacrifice the first few months of the 2011-12 season to get a deal done.

Other NBA stars including Kobe Bryant, Amare Stoudemire, Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony and Deron Williams also have said they'll consider overseas playing opportunities during the lockout.
