A couple years overseas could set him up for millions in the league. He can play next level for sure.

That's not generally how it happens. Most guys that go overseas don't typically make it back, even the ones that started out in the NBA. His best shot at sticking in the NBA is to go the G-League route for a few years (gonna be less money unless he makes it to the NBA), and then cut bait and go overseas if unsuccessful. Going overseas first is not generally the path to the NBA for an undrafted player.

G League contracts are now set at $35k or $7k a month for 5 months. They are not guaranteed. (There will be guys on guaranteed NBA contracts that make more.)  Some guys will have to decide if they are willing to sacrifice some financial comfort for their best opportunity to showcase themselves to the NBA. Macon could most likely make considerably more money going overseas. $35k for 5 months is certainly better conditions than guys trying to make it to MLB from a low draft status.

I think we will also have to start looking at the G league in a different light. The NBA is fully vested into using it to it's potential as a developmental league.

Response: that's not entirely true one of our own P Beverly went that way via the Ukraine  I believe for 5yrs before landing in Houston and traded to Los Angeles clippers last season

It is absolutely entirely true that **generally** players do not go overseas and then make a nice career in the NBA. You only proved my point with suvivorship bias.

My use of the words "generally" and "typically" clearly allowed for the odd case, as it should go without saying that there are exceptions to every rule. But you'll find that the overwhelming majority of 2nd-round or undrafted players that go overseas don't ever make it back stateside to play in the NBA, let alone "set up for millions in the league." Beverley may actually be the lone case of this exception currently in the NBA.
