To say Deron Williams has struggled with his transition is an understatement. Only shooting 21% (8-38) over his first three overseas games, missing out on qualifying for Euroleague... He looked a far cry from the 20-10 guy he'd been in the NBA. Until today, that is.
Deron led Beşiktaş Milangaz to a 100-93 victory over Pinar Karşiyaka today, with a team-high 24 points and 10 assists. (Box score here.) D-Will added four rebounds and shot 9-14 from the floor, 4-7 from beyond the arc... all with old/future boss Billy King in attendance.
Beşiktaş plays next on Saturday the 29th against Turk Telekom, led by Mehmet Okur and former NBA player Darius Washington, Jr.
