Deron Williams wasn't too happy about his Besiktas team losing to Barca Tercas Teramo, 86-84, Sunday in the third place game of the Vasco Martini exhibition tournament. First of all, Teramo is led by his Illinois teammate, Dee Brown. He wasn't crazy about the refereeing either.
He tweeted, "Italian refs was in full Tim Donaghy mode tonight but its all good! Ready to get back to Istanbul." D-Will scored 14 points on 5-for-20 shooting, grabbing 5 rebounds and handing out 10 assists. He's spent one day in Istanbul since arriving Sept. 8, playing in two Italian tournaments.
He plays his first official European game, a EuroCup contest vs. a Belgian team, a week from Tuesday.
