FIBA Approves Overseas Contracts; Last Impediment for D-Will To Turkey

FIBA, the world's baskeball governing body, has approved overseas clubs signing NBA players during the lockout, even those like Deron Williams who are under contract.  It's the last roadblock for Williams and other NBA players who want to play overseas during the labor dispute. The ruling is seen as a victory for the players.

Secretary general Patrick Baumann says in a statement Friday that FIBA supports "any player wishing to play the game, wherever and whenever. We do so while obviously taking the interests, rights and obligations of all parties into account."
