    Assume this is a top level European league with good payday?

    Couldn't find a good spot to put this, but Mooney got signed by the Memphis Grizzlies. Good for him.

    Not to carry on the thread drift in the USD week thread so I will post it here.

    Making league minimum at best. Euroleague is twice that pay, the idea of a pro career is to maximize earnings. For a tweener G League/NBA guy like a Daum or Wolters, Europe pays a LOT better. Mike isn't athletic enough to play defense in the NBA. Euro ball suits his body type and style.

    If you're uber athletic like Flatten than the G League makes sense.

    For skilled, not super athletic guys like Daum and Wolters, Euroleauge is the way to go to maximize earnings.

    Totally agree but you had said the GLeague isn’t the place to make the NBA which I disagree with you on. IMO, Mooney has a greater chance of making it to NBA playing in GLeague than Daum does playing in Europe. GLaegue is becoming a true minor league farm system.

    Mooney does have a shot on a 2 way contract of saying he was in the NBA. The guys that make it to the NBA from the G League are super athletic players that are still learning to play basketball. Daum isn't that type of player, I should have been more clear on that.

    Agree on Daum. He will make good money in Europe.
    But Duncan Robinson, isn’t super athletic but he is getting quality mins and has started 7 games for the Heat.

    I guess I was going from the perspective getting to the nba is the ultimate goal not earning as much as you can playing in other leagues. Frankly I think daum should be in the G or D league what ever it is. I think his ability to shoot and stretch the floor is enough to get a chance. How much more athletic was mike miller. He made a great career as a 3 point specialist. Wolters and Daum are going to make more money yes but the nba dream basically has little to no chance the longer they are there.
