DERON WILLIAMS HAS HIS EYES ON TURKEY
Mon, 11 Jul 2011 02:49 PM EDT

We all know that a lockout is never a good thing and now we know exactly why… Deron Williams the guard for the New Jersey Nets is now planning to move to Turkey if the fall if the NBA does not settle this issue and lift the lockout. Jeff Schwartz who is William’s newly hired agent has confirmed this yesterday to ESPN as well as it has been confirmed by NTV Spor a Turkey based sports outlet. The All Star point guard has now struck an agreement in principal to go over and play for Besiktas which is the same club which also briefly employed Allen Iverson last season. This deal means a one year contract and $5 million according to sources.

Ergin Ataman the coach for Besiktas speaking to the New York Times said that the team also had an agreement with the center of the Atlanta Hawks Zaza Pachulia. He also said that he is not done yet chasing NBA players suffering from the lockout. Las Vegas odds

Ataman said “If there’s a possibility, we’ll talk with Kobe Bryant if he’d like to play in Europe with Deron and with other guys to play we can talk with him,” “If Kobe would like to play with us, we will also contact his agent and maybe with him.”

According to Ataman the deal with Williams will become official and binding within the next 24 hours and the president of the club Seref Yalcin would then join Williams in a news conference in the United States next week. A similar news conference was held in New York when the singed on Iverson last October. However, the sources reveal that Williams will not have to report to the Turkish club until early September. The deal would also conclude immediately after the work stoppage ends which means he will return to the NBA. Betting lines

Williams has just two years left on his contract with his present team and is expected to opt out of the team in the final season, he is valued at nearly $18 million and will become a free agent in the summer of 2012. Basketball betting lines

However, Williams would typically need a Clarence letter from the FIBA. But that could change as one of the sources near Williams said “If they try to stop him,” “the union will fight it.”
