Campbell looking overseas

Well if you haven't already noticed Folarin Campbell was not invited to any NBA summer league teams. This article from states that Campbell has drawn interest from teams in France, Italy, Germany, and Australia. Interesting quote from the article regarding his NBA try-outs:
‘‘They said a lot of positive things,” Campbell said. ‘‘They said I shot the ball well, but they already had point guard and shooting guard filled. I was basically trying to find someone who needs a point guard. So we decided to look overseas.”
Could Campbell be staying at the point guard position overseas in hope of being successful enough to get another try-out in the NBA? I say this because honestly as much as Larranaga tried to make him a legit point guard I always thought Campbell worked better as a shooting guard. The extra responsibility of carrying the ball up seemed to hamper his shooting and often times left him out of position. I would think he would get more action overseas as a shooting guard but knows that in the NBA he would be more desirable as a point guard given his size.
