Zaza Pachulia will not be playing for Beskitas


From Pachulia’s Twitter:

There was lot of talking me going to play for Besiktas during lockout.We couldn’t agree on the therms (sic) and I’m not going to play for them.

This just serves as more proof that despite basketball’s surging popularity in Europe and the high level of play over there, European teams don’t have the funds for NBA players to simply hop overseas and get paid what they want if the lockout goes on.
