DWill Goes For 11 Points In Turkish League Debut

by October 16, 2011

Not gaudy numbers for the Nets‘ All-Star, but at least DWill is paid and playing. Did he make the right decision to play overseas? Time will tell: “Deron Williams scored 11 points and had five assists to help Besiktas to a 107-69 victory over Bandirma Kirmizi on Sunday in the NBA player’s Turkish league debut. New Jersey Nets guard Williams — a two-time NBA all-star and former Illinois star — is among a number of players from the league signed to overseas clubs until the end of the lockout. Another lockout signing, Cleveland Cavaliers’ Turkish forward Semih Erden, scored 13 points and gathered 8 rebounds to help Besiktas open the season with an emphatic win.”
