Former Spurs guard Chris Quinn is among 23 NBA players who did not have opt-out clauses that would enable them to return to the United States from overseas when the lockout ended.
Quinn, who made $875,000 while playing with the Spurs, signed with the Moscow-based team Khimki in late July.
The Denver Nuggets will take the biggest hit in players not returning. The Nuggets will lose Wilson Chandler and J.R. Smith, two of the three NBA players to average double figures last season who didn’t have opt-out clauses. The other was Phoenix guard Aaron Brooks.
Here’s a list compiled by Basketball-reference.com of the players who won’t for the start of the season.
