Parker, Hill, Batum to play in French exhibition game

The Los Angeles Drew League isn’t the only place to catch NBA stars right now, if you happen to be in France this Friday…

Portland Trail Blazer Nicolas Batum is putting together an “all star” exhibition in France this Friday that will feature Tony Parker, George Hill and Ian Mahinmi, according to the French paper OuestFrance (via the Project Spurs blog).

Batum is a guy whose name comes up as a potential guy to play in Europe — specifically back in his native France — if there is an extended NBA lockout. But he is also a guy who has an NBA contract that has a couple more years on it so he would need a special clearance from FIBA to sign with another team. FIBA has hinted they might grant those clearances if a full NBA season were lost, but now we’re talking January at best and any good European squad would have filled its roster by then.

For now, the only way you are seeing Batum on the continent is in an exhibition game on Friday.

I'm stuck in the Bordeaux airport as I post this. My luggage is lost. Maybe George Hill can bring me a toothbrush or something.

Really, there must be something about European Airports and losing luggage. My family and a few others took a trip to Africa where they first stopped in Amsterdam, and all of their luggage (15 people worth) was left in Amsterdam. They eventually got their luggage though.
