Chris Paul has now added his name to the list of NBA superstars who are open to playing overseas if the lockout bleeds into the fall. Surprised? I didn't think so.

Paul will join other players this weekend for two exhibition games in the Philippines. Paul, Kobe Bryant, Derek Fisher, Kevin Durant, James Harden, Tyreke Evans, and Derrick Rose are playing in the exhibition series to benefit the MVP Sports Foundation.

Will playing a few games on foreign soil with other superstars make Paul thirsty for more competition overseas?
