NBA Players Going Overseas

NBA Players Going Overseas
Because the NBA lockout has forced the cancellation games through Nov. 30 and could possibly shorten the 2011-12 campaign even more, many of the league's players have looked in to competing overseas. Nets All-Star Deron Williams was the first big name to make it official when he signed with Turkish club Besiktas, but many others have since followed. Here are those who have secured deals elsewhere while the NBA remains in limbo.
