During the 2011 NBA lockout, Williams signed a one-year contract for $5 million to play for the Beşiktaş of the Turkish Basketball League. His contract allows him to return to the NBA with the Nets when the work stoppage ends. Beşiktaş was the same team that signed Allen Iverson in 2010. Because Williams is still under an NBA contract, he required clearance from FIBA in order to play elsewhere.
