ANKARA, Turkey (AP) -- New Jersey Nets point guard Deron Williams says on Twitter that he has officially signed with Turkey's Besiktas.
The All-Star guard has posted a picture of Friday's agreement with Besiktas bearing his signature on his Twitter account.
Williams says on Twitter: "just made it official, headed to Turkey...signed with Besiktas."
Williams averaged 20.1 points and 10.3 assists for the Nets and the Utah Jazz last season.
This matters and it might only be the beginning. I don't like the idea of any players playing overseas and I'm sure I'm not the only one.
On the other hand this will most likely eliminate one team available to sign players. Of course losing one player temporarily might lead to more.
