“In the event of an NBA work stoppage or players' strike, it would first have to be determined whether the players are still under a valid contract,” Wanninger said. “If this were the case, players cannot play elsewhere…If contracts are not valid any longer, they are free to transfer.”

The question is whether NBA players' contracts are considered valid during the lockout, when even players under contract are not receiving their salaries.

“I would rather play to stay in shape rather than stay idle,” Ibaka is quoted as saying. “We do not know how the lockout will go or the possibility for a player leaving the NBA to come to play here. But I would like an opportunity to play at a site where people like me. That would be nice, too.”
