HoopsHype Besiktas rumors


January 10, 2012 Updates

Adam Morrison has signed a one-year deal with Turkish team Besiktas, his agent Brad Ames told SI.com. The former Gonzaga star who came close to retiring last year before his hoops revival had been let out of his deal with Serbia's Red Star Belgrade in late November. But sources close to him said his best shot at returning to the NBA fell through when Grizzlies forward Darrell Arthur tore his ACL and the team sought another big man instead of a perimeter threat. They ultimately traded for Philadelphia center Marreese Speights last week, and Morrison was forced to continue rediscovering his game overseas. SI.com

Any reservations because Allen Iverson had a difficult time with that team? Deron Williams: I didn’t even know that. I thought he liked it. He didn’t like it. At the time, I thought he liked it. But I think I adjust well. I like trying different things, different proposals. I’m not scared to try things. I heard he went to TGIFridays everyday. I went to TGIFridays one time. So I think we’re a little different. New York Daily News
