OKLAHOMA CITY – As the NBA lockout looks more likely to consume a full season, more players are looking for work overseas.

One of those players is Oklahoma City's own Kevin Durant.

Durant's agent, Aaron Goodwin, confirmed an overseas report that Durant has been in talks with BBC Bayreuth, a professional German basketball club based in Bayreuth, Bavaria.

Goodwin told on Thursday that the talks are ongoing but a deal isn't necessarily imminent.

Durant said he had been considering a jump overseas if the NBA lockout talks didn't progress, and recent developments likely have not done anything to help convince him to stay.

The NBA Players' Association recently rejected an offer from the NBA and its owners that David Stern called their final offer before reverting back to a much stiffer bargaining stance.

The Players' Union then decertified and will file antitrust lawsuits against the league, kicking off what could be a very lengthy process that could consume the whole season.
