Paul, Anthony open to China moves

AP

Hong Kong — Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony say they will consider offers to play professional basketball in China if there is no resolution to the NBA lockout.

Both players are on a promotional tour of China while monitoring news from home about the so-far fruitless attempts to break the NBA's labor impasse.

With Kobe Bryant reportedly negotiating a deal to play in Turkey, New Orleans Hornets' Paul and New York Knicks forward Anthony said they were also considering overseas moves.

Asked by SNTV where they would go, Anthony replied "China." Paul responded "Same, no question".

The answers may have been designed to flatter their hosts, but Anthony added "it's a lot of history here, the fans are great; why not, why not try it out?"
