Talking Deron Williams plays first game that matters for his Turkish team

FIBA.com reports: In the first leg of their Qualifying Round tie with Dexia Mons Hainaut in Istanbul, Williams made just three of his 15 shots from the floor but ended up with 15 points as Besiktas won 78-70. He also handed out nine assists.

-----

In an European basketball game played in Turkey, 12 players played over 10 minutes in the game.

5 from Besiktas (the entire bench combined for 23 minutes)
7 from Mons (the rest of the team combined for 16 minutes)

11/12 of those players were Americans.

Besiktas:
Erwin Dudley (13 points/10 rebounds)
David Hawkins (9 points)
Deron Williams (15 points/9 assists)
Marcellus Kemp (24 points)
Zoran Erceg (15 points/10 rebounds) - the only European player in the game to register more than 2 points and 4 rebounds.

Mons:
Quincy Taylor (12 points)
Warren Carter (11 points)
Ahmad Nivins (12 points)
Sean Singletary (4 points)
Shan Foster (3 points)
Justin Cage (13 points)
AJ Slaughter (11 points)
The rest of the team: 4 points


The final score: 78-70 Besiktas

129/148 or 87% points in European basketball game in Turkey were scored by Americans. Might as well played this as a pickup game in DC.

Anyone else find this ironic?

That is effed up. Most teams outside of USA limit foreign-born players on their rosters.

Yep, looks like there's no limit in Belgium (and a few other countries) but there's a lot of ways of getting around it.

Erwin Dudley on D-Will's team has Turkish citizenship and goes by "Ersan Dagli" , so it helps get around the limit of non-EU/American players

Or take the team Gran Canaria in Spain, there's a limit of 2 or 3 non-EU players in Spain but they've got 5 Americans with other citizenships

Spencer Nelson (Azerbaijan)
Taurean Green (Georgia)

Yeah, that's common and sucks.
We got 3 in our roster, only two of them being considered non EU players.
