Deron Williams to play in Turkey

Now with word of Deron Williams planning to take his talents to Turkey if the NBA lockout isn't resolved, will the flood gates open? Me and numerous other people here at our firm have been saying this should be a real concern for owners and fan alike. The simple fact is NBA players could make more money there with Today's salary cap. So with the lockout underway and owners wanting max deals cut in half and average salary in the league cut 60 plus percent don't be surprised if a few players actually do go to Europe.
There is allot of upside for guys to go over seas other than the up in pay grade. Taxes for starters are considerable lower, cost of living is lower aswell and in most cases they will live like kings for free. When big name players go to Europe they are greeted and treated the the Beatles.
So what I wonder is if an entire NBA season is lost and players do go over to play during the stoppage, will they come back once a new agreement is made? That should be a real concern for NBA fans. The game isn't in a great place right now, and after this is all said and done it will more than likely be at a all-time low. So at that time the NBA will need there stars and the best players in the world to help the game recover.
For me and allot of our staff, there is a long list that needs fixed in the NBA. Most of all College kids must stay 1 to 2 more years, they need to fix incoming lack of talent for the drafts.
