Krstic sees greener grass, more cash on the other side

Nenad Krstic became the sixth player this offseason to leave the NBA for a more lucrative contract overseas. It's a good thing the Nets got so many "bigs" in the June draft and traded for Yi, now that they've lost Krstic and Bostjan Nachbar, both to foreign teams.

A lot of agents have been using the European card as leverage in negotiations, but the reality is that guys like Krstic, Nachbar and Carlos Delfino can make more money and be stars across the pond. In the US, they are mid-level NBA players who aren't really a big deal.
