Yeah spend your early 20s getting paid decent money to play a sport you love around foreign countries, terrible. I feel like we act like playing in Europe is a big punishment but it's something that's still a fantastic life opportunity

Certainly beats most of the jobs other kids his age have, ai na?

If the knicks buy out Wes's contract - he'll be strongly in demand for top level playoff teams who need a D and 3 guy.  Could be his lucky year and a chance at a championship.

I don't know I really loved my early and mid 20s making cold calls for Groupon and Stericycle. If I were him I'd pass up playing basketball around the world to do that in a heartbeat!

You are getting paid to do something that most people do for fun.  If it pays the bills, what's not to love?

I don’t see the Warriors adding him, so really no chance at a championship this year.

Sure, but once you've sniffed the NBA, playing in front of 18,000 fans for millions of dollars, playing in a 1,500 person gym for $150K doesn't have quite the same appeal.

I mean ya, obviously better than a desk job. But also obviously not even remotely close to how he planned his first contract going. It’s been an unmitigated disaster.

Hope he finds somewhere to latch on in the NBA next season, though. Will always root for the kid.

Oh I was being sarcastic, cold calling sucks.

Yeah I wouldn't mind doing either one.

Henry is an early 20s recent lottery pick. He’s not playing in Romania. He will end up in Spain, Italy, or Greece/Turkey on one of the Euroleague teams. It’s not the NBA, but it’s high level ball and playing in 10-15K arenas. Luke Fischer’s team in Gran Canaria plays in a 12K seat arena

Yeah its bizarre. 6'10 guy who is decently athletic. Who can dribble and pass and shoot. It's odd how he hasn't looked like he can make it in the nba at all... guys like john luer can make it but not Henry? Hell idk I think Joey will play nba ball. Is Joey better? Lol crap idk

I think "can't shoot" may be more accurate.  Henry was drafted on the potential to develop into a good shooter,  but that part hasn't developed as hoped.

Pretty sure euro leagues don't pay $150K. Maybe in the range of $40-60K?

Europeans see basketball how we see soccer. MLS players aren't making six figures, at least last I checked

Top European leagues definitely pay over $100k.

Median MLS salary in 2017 was $135K. It's gone up since then. Last year, 25 MLS players were being paid more than seven figures.

Euro basketball salaries can vary widely by leagues, but the top players in the better leagues can earn high six to seven figures. And remember, it's often tax free. China also is becoming a high-paid option for American players.

from what I remember reading, when healthy, he wasn't seeing the floor because of his defense

Henry has been healing from an ankle injury.   Rehabbing last night and tonight in the G-league.   I am about to go watch him.

Fair enough.  Per wiki, average attendance this year has been 5,800+.  Not as small as I expected.  Couldn't find any salary info though. Looks like he is the 3rd string C, averaging < 4ppg, so I doubt he is getting paid much.

He would be making much more than that and in front of larger crowds. He wouldn't be going to a lower division.

Henry Ellenson will be released soon. That might end his NBA career for a while
