Default Re: D-Will To sign with Besiktas Cola Turka of Istanbul

Turkish team Besiktas says it is close to reaching a deal with locked out NBA All-Star guard Deron Williams. Besiktas manager Murat Murtezaoglu said talks are under way with the New Jersey Nets player and U.S. Olympian. Coach Ergin Ataman told the state-run Anatolia news agency that a deal was close. He also told The New York Times that an agreement had been reached. Jeff Schwartz, Williams' agent, did not immediately return a telephone call seeking comment. AP

Williams, who the Nets acquired in February in a stunning deal with Utah, was supposed to earn $16.36 million with New Jersey next season. His performance with New Jersey was hindered by a wrist injury that required surgery. It is uncertain how his contract with the Nets would be affected if he were hurt playing for another team. AP
