D-Will Looks Good in Alumni Game; Little to No Talk of Nets, Turkey

New, comments

Deron Williams, playing in his first organized basketball game since wrist surgery in April, looked for all the world (including Turkey) like his old self in an Alumni game on the University of Illinois campus.  He scored 11 points, grabbed a game high 8 rebounds and passed out a game-high 8 assists. Ex-Net Kendall Gill scored 13.

The big moment however came when he showed off his athleticism. After passing the ball to himself for a two hand slam, which got the 6,000 present rocking...in spite of no air-conditioning.

There little to no talk of the Nets, lockout or Turkey other than he'll be facing off against Demetri McCamey, from this year's Illini, in Turkey. McCamey signed with Mersin.
