It really came as shocking upon learning talks between the young but future NBA legend Kevin Durant and a Turkish basketball team is in the works! Won’t we see the 22-year old in a blue Thunders jersey this season?

The Turkish club Besiktas have acquired former Utah Jazz and New Jersey Nets point guard Deron Williams for a year. The one year contract cost them $5M. Hungry for more, Besiktas also went after 5-time NBA Champion and 2-time Finals MVP Kobe Bryant.

VATAN, a Turkish newspaper wrote that if Besiktas fails to recruit Bryant, they would then shift their focus on the guard/forward Kevin Durant.

“The Turkish teams have been real aggressive,” says Duran’ts agent Aaron Goodwin. “The Turkish option is very intriguing. We’re looking at other countries as well. Kevin hasn’t agreed to play anywhere yet, but we’re looking for the best fit.”

Rumors also has it that Lakers’ Ron Artest will be playing in England during the lockout.
