ISTANBUL (AP) — Deron Williams scored 11 points and had five assists to help Besiktas to a 107-69 victory over Bandirma Kirmizi on Sunday in the NBA player’s Turkish league debut.

New Jersey Nets guard Williams — a two-time NBA all-star — is among a number of players from the North American league signed to overseas clubs until the end of the lockout.

Another lockout signing, Cleveland Cavaliers’ Turkish forward Semih Erden, scored 13 points and gathered 8 rebounds to help Besiktas open the season with an emphatic win.

Marcelus Kemp led Besiktas with 27 points while David Hawkins added 22 points and four assists.

The first two weeks of the NBA season have already been canceled.
