Depends on the league, and even then I'm not sure I buy it. Playing in the PAC-10, ACC, SEC etc... is pretty close to world class competition. And it's a style of play much closer to the NBA game.
He's going to Europe as a fallback plan. He wasn't going to qualify, probably knew it even before the results came back, and Europe was basically his only option. To me, anything he may say otherwise is just hollow spin.
He may make some money in the short term, but by not starring on the college level in front of American companies, he's risking some serious endorsement potential.
