It’s that time of year again. College basketball players have their NCAA careers come to an end, in what seems like the blink of an eye.
For many, the DREAM of playing basketball for a living begins. Where do you start? Who do you talk to? What are you supposed to do?

At this point of your career, you should know if you have the skills to play in the NBA or D-League. For most college basketball players that want to continue their basketball career, playing internationally in Europe, Asia, Australia and Latin America is a viable next step.
So, the most common question you hear from college basketball players is, how do I play basketball overseas?
Hopefully, the 5 actionable tips below will help kick-start your thinking process and show you which direction to swim.
