OKLAHOMA CITY – The list of NBA players' names being tossed around for a potential "exodus" overseas during the lockout is already impressive, sporting names such as Kobe Bryant and Deron Williams.

But now they can add a back-to-back scoring champ to that list.

Thunder forward Kevin Durant's agent, Aaron Goodwin, told SI.com that he is looking into overseas options for his client and they can't rule it out if the NBA has a lengthy lockout.

When asked late last week on Twitter by a fan whether he planned on playing in Europe, Durant responded, "it's lookin like I might..idk yet"

The NBA lockout began on July 1 after players and owners could not agree to terms on a new collective bargaining agreement.

Among the disputes which are currently not close to being worked out are issues such as salary cap, revenue sharing and overall income split.

The lockout could result in a shortened regular season – or no season at all – and some NBA players are already making plans to head overseas and play.
