Dei Lynam of CSN Philly has the scoop.

The Sixers' Lou Williams had an opportunity to play in Europe for a team he would not disclose, but did say was in Europe's top league. He turned it down.

Here's what The Boss had to say:

"... Me personally I am not a big traveler, the NBA season kills me as it is so I am not really a fan of going overseas and playing, but some guys like to travel and see different things and on top of that get an opportunity to play basketball."

Andre Iguodala is avoiding playing overseas for other reasons.

"I would have enjoyed going over there and playing but I have other things as far as the length of my contract and what is at stake for me makes that not a smart decision," Iguodala explained. "I would have to have everything written in paper as far as being insured and being covered ..."

And Evan Turner just wants to spend more time with HOF shooting coach Herb Magee.

"I am going to Henry Avenue with Herb Magee to work on my jumper," Turner stressed, referring to his new best teaching friend and Hall of Fame coach at Philadelphia University. "I am not going anywhere else."

Craig Brackins and Lavoy Allen are the only Sixers to sign overseas thus far, and Nikola Vucevic is reportedly close.
