Here is our almost daily round-up of which NBA players have signed overseas, which have not, and which could not find Europe on a map.

Brian Scalabrine is about to make Italy more fun. He is getting a tryout the next couple weeks with the Italian club Treviso (a EuroLeague club that has E’Twaun Moore and Jeff Adrien on the roster). He still has to earn a deal with the team. Scalabrine is a free agent so the club does not have to give him an opt-out clause to return to the NBA when the lockout ends.

• The Nuggets Danilo Gallinari is denying reports in Italy that he signed to play for Olimpia Milano during the lockout. It could still happen — this is the team he played for before coming to the NBA — but he denies a deal is in place now.

• Wizards big man JaVale McGee says he is not heading to Europe. The same Washington Post article about this describes McGee as “notoriously frugal” so he should be fine in the money department.

• Partizan Belgrade has reportedly set its eyes on getting Jonas Jerebko.

• He’s not an NBA guy but he is a guy a lot of you thought would be — Duke’s Kyle Singler has signed with Alicante of the Spanish league (the ABC).

    he is one of the good guys in the league, i think he still has some gas left in the tank, playing overseas makes sense for him because coach Thibs let him sit all year
