Besiktas Retires Deron Williams Jersey In Farewell Ceremony

Deron Williams played in just a handful of games for his Turkish team Besiktas before the NBA lockout ended, however that didn’t stop the team from immortalizing the New Jersey Nets point guard by retiring his number.

Williams most memorable moment overseas came when he helped his team to a 105-94 victory over Gottingen, when he scored 50 points in one of his last games with the Turkish squad. The NBA All-Star averaged just over 20 points and 6.8 assists per game during his time in Turkey.

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