Love, Deng In Talks With Besiktas

by November 19, 2011

Perpetually looking to engage NBA players, Besiktas may be close to signing Kevin Love or Luol Deng to play in Turkey. Yahoo! reports: “As time and hope for salvaging an NBA season continue to dissipate, Turkey’s top team is engaged in serious talks with Kevin Love and Luol Deng about joining point guard Deron Williams in the Turkish Basketball League. ‘I’ve been going back and forth with Deron on it,” Love told Yahoo! Sports’ Marc Spears on Friday. ‘I’ll be making my decision in the next couple of days.’ Deng’s representatives have traded contract proposals with Besiktas too, sources said, and they’re working on insurance proposals to protect the remaining $42 million on his Chicago Bulls contract.”
