Los Angeles Lakers forward Lamar Odom has agreed to a contract with the Turkish team for which New Jersey Nets guard Deron Williams is playing, ESPN reported, citing sources close to Odom.

Odom will make $2-million if he plays the rest of the season for Besiktas, according to the report. Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love turned down a similar deal earlier this week but said he still is open to the possibility if the NBA lockout drags on, and Besiktas also has approached Williams’ Nets teammate Brook Lopez.

Williams scored 50 points in a game earlier this week.
