Allen Iverson Signs One Month Contract To Play In The Dominican Republic

 

Allen Iverson should be developing a taste for mofongo soon. The Associated Press reports that the former NBA All-Star has signed a one month contract with a basketball team in the Dominican RepublicMilton Nunez, club president of the Pueblo Nuevo team A.I. will be playing for, told the AP that the 36-year-old point guard is due to arrive in D.R. and Sunday (March 25th) and will be playing in a game the same day.

“He and his agent have told us that he has been training a lot and that even if he hasn’t been playing anywhere, he has what we need to help Pueblo Nuevo,” said Nunez. Although Iverson has said he hopes to make a return to the NBA, his on court and off court life has been full of struggle. The fiery player with much heart, but little desire to practice, turned down an opportunity to join an NBA D-League squad, has had numerous financial issues and most recently has had his estranged wife demand he list the names and numbers of all his former jump-offs.

A one month stint hooping in the tropics is not what anyone expected of the man that shook Michael Jordan at the top of the key.
