Deron Williams' contract with Turkish basketball team Besiktas won't be nearly as rich as his deal with the New Jersey Nets, but if he ends up playing for Besiktas during the 2011 NBA lockout, he'll make $200,000 per month, according to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski.
Over the nine months of Besiktas' season, that amounts to $1.8 million for Williams. According to ShamSports' NBA salary index, Williams was set to make over $16 million for the Nets in the 2011-12 season.
So Williams' Besiktas salary would amount to just a drop in the bucket compared to his massive NBA deal: Williams would make $199,509 per game in the 2011-12 season, provided he played all 82 games for the Nets during the regular season. But if one is forced to take a second job, one that pays $1.8 million a year is not exactly being made to starve.
