    Really interesting article. The raiding of European talent does hurt the teams there from a broad perspective, however many players have expensive buyout clauses that keep them tied to their team or offer a significant cash benefit for players embarking to the NBA.

    Mark Cuban had a blog post on something similar, a business idea around developing talent and then using buyout clauses to get paid for doing the development work.
