The Turkish professional basketball team, Besiktas, is trying to get the services of the New Jersey Nets point guard, Derron Williams. And, with the on going NBA Lockout it seems that they will be successful in luring the 6'4 point guard to play for them. Williams has 2 more playing years left in his contract with the Nets, but with the stoppage of work in the NBA because of the Lockout, he might as well accept the offer of the Turkish team. Besiktas is offering him a contract that depends on a future condition that if the NBA Lockout stops, Williams can go back to the NBA to continue his contract with the Nets. It's really a win-win situation on the part of Williams.
For Williams, money really matters because Besiktas is offering him a huge amount of money which is way higher than what he can get with the Nets due to the Lockout. And to think that the Besiktas team was able to get Allen Iverson to play for them last year, I don't see any reason why they can't get Williams.
True enough, the team manager of the Besiktas team, Mr. Murat Murtezaoglu said that they are finalizing their deal with Williams and that the deal is soon to be perfected.
