Turkish League/Mini-Camps

The NFL Lockout had Player Organized mini-camps, where basically the captains or leaders of the team got together with their players and held practices. It seemed to work out pretty well for some teams (Saints and Jets mostly).

Thinking about this NBA Lockout, we know its going to be a long lockout. Do you see the players having those same mini-camps? Also many are talking of going abroad and playing in oversea leagues. Is this basically going to be their mini-camps?

One crazy idea I heard was about the Turkish League. Hearing the idea first, I didn't approve but thinking about it a while later, I realize I like the idea more and more. Basically Enes Kanter gets together with his old team, Fenerbahçe Ülker and resigns. He talks them into bringing in some of the key components to the Jazz team (Hayward, Harris, Millsap, Favors, etc.) They all get playing time and use to each other style. They be on the road together in a foreign country so they would band together, not knowing the culture.

When the lockout is lifted, the Jazz men come back home and have basically half to full season under their belt together.
