Deron Williams agrees to play in Turkey if the NBA Lockout continues.



If you don't know who Deron Williams is, then think of the second best player in the league at his position. He's easily a top 20 NBA player, maybe top 15. With him breaking the line and showing he's willing to play anywhere as long as he's playing, you wonder how much leverage the NBA owners really have in the lockout. These Euro country's are notorious for way overpaying mediocre players. What happens when other NBA players jump in line with Williams?

I just hope he doesn't get injured and ruin his career. If this works out, he's going to make a hefty sum for however long the lockout lasts. So props D-Will, proving it's not about money, but about the game.
