Personal favourite former Bulls guard N-Rich retired from the game seven years ago, but later returned to play seven more years. (True story. Long story. Never mind the details.) He has only played 45 minutes all season, though. N went unsigned until early March, at which point he was able to catch on with German team Bremerhaven.

The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
