Allen Iverson To Play Basketball In Turkey
After posting 11 all-star game appearances, 4 scoring titles and delivering countless broken ankles, it finally appears Allen Iverson’s services are no long wanted in the NBA, so it’s on to the next one.
The Answer has agreed to sign a two-year contract worth $4 million to play with Besiktas of the Turkish professional league, according to Yahoo! Sports.
According to the report, Iverson turned down a more lucrative deal in China because he is more intrigued about the idea of playing in Istanbul.
Iverson is expected to sign the contract this week. Besiktas, a perennial powerhouse in the Turkish league, has already begun their season and stands at 1-1.
Iverson is expected to report to his new team sometime during the first week of November.
If last year was Iverson’s last shot in the League, it marks a sad finale to the player whom many deem as the best little man to ever play the in the NBA.
