According to Deron Williams Twitter account, Williams has not only arrived in Turkey, but he has actually won a game already! Originally just shooting around, Williams decided to play, and picked up his first “W” in Turkey. Whether or not it was an official game remains to be seen. But one thing remains clear, the NBA players clearly have sent a message that they are ready to pursue other ventures if a deal to end the lockout isn’t reached.
Nets fans can only cringe at the sight of Williams playing in Turkey for a year then losing him in free agency. Cheer up Nets fans, all signs are pointing towards more favorable negotiations as talks between the owners and players have increased over the last week.
