Give credit to Deron Williams for following through on his promise. Back in May, he said that if an NBA lockout were to occur, he would head overseas to play in order to stay in shape. "I'm already looking into playing overseas," he said at the time. "But I'm not going to make a decision until after the CBA [expires]."
Well, the CBA did expire late last week and it looks like D-Will has made his decision—he's reportedly going to sign a contract with Turkish club Besiktas (the same team that briefly employed Allen Iverson last season!) that will allow him to play in Turkey until the NBA lockout ends. Hey, it can't be any worse than playing in New Jersey, right? [via theScore]
