Tinsley, 36, registered 1.1 points, 1.4 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game over eight showings for the Utah Jazz last season, his third straight with the organization. Now a free-agent, Tinsley told Eurobasket he's looking to cross the pond to continue his career overseas. "I got a lot of juice left in me and my age isn't a concern because of the level I compete at when I'm on the court, but I'm done with the NBA for now," said Tinsley. "I workout twice a day, maintain a healthy diet, and I weigh 190 pounds. I'm ready to go." Asia-Basket

During the recent off-season Tinsley said he turned down a bunch of NBA offers to go to vet-camp. Another proposed deal to the ultra-skilled ball-handler was a non-guaranteed offer sheet from the Oklahoma City Thunder. "OKC offered but I elected not to indulge because it wasn't a guaranteed deal and I'm too far along in my career for non-guarantees," Tinsley said. Asia-Basket

The Fujian Quanzhou Bank of the Chinese Basketball Association, according to sources, were in advanced discussions to bring Tinsley to Asia. It was an opportunity for Tinsley to regroup with former Pacers teammate, Al Harrington. "I had about four offers to go overseas, a few that I'm thinking about right now. One offer was to play on the same team with Al (Harrington), but it fell through. Other offers were long-term contracts and I wasn't feeling that," Tinsley added. Asia-Basket
