NBA Star Deron Williams Scores 50 In Besiktas Victory

New Jersey Nets star Deron Williams scored 50 points tonight in Besiktas’ 105-94 victory over Gottingen, according to the team's official website. 

In the victory, Williams was reportedly 17/23 from the field. Prior to tonight’s game, Williams had averaged 20.5 points and 6.83 assists per game for his Turkish squad, who is now 6-1 with the NBA star on the floor.

Williams averaged 20.1 points and 10.3 assists per game in 65 games between the Utah Jazzz and the New Jersey Nets last season. He missed the final few games of the season after undergoing surgery on his right wrist.

In July, Williams became the first major star to sign with a foreign team as a result of the NBA lockout. It is believed Williams is making approximately $200,000 per month.
