Many players signed with teams from other leagues due to the 2011 NBA lockout. FIBA allows players under NBA contracts to sign and play for teams from other leagues if the contracts have opt-out clauses that allow the players to return to the NBA if the lockout ends.[3] The Chinese Basketball Association, however, only allows its clubs to sign foreign free agents who could play for at least the entire season.[4]
