Could Irving go overseas?
Irving said via his Twitter account that he could play abroad.
"If a deal doesn't get done soon ... overseas here I come," he tweeted.
The 6-2, 190-pound Irving is attending classes at Duke.
The 19-year-old played just 11 games with the Blue Devils during his freshman year. He said earlier that he didn't want to play overseas, but very few people expected the lockout to last this long.
