Report: Allen Iverson will sign contract to play in Turkey
There were no takers in the NBA, so Allen Iverson has reached agreement on a deal to play in Turkey, according to a Yahoo report.
Iverson's incentive-laden deal with Besiktas of the Turkish pro league reportedly is for two years and $4 million. The contract has an opt-out clause after the season; however, there is no escape clause that would allow him to leave and return to the NBA. Iverson, sources told Yahoo, intends to sign this week and to report for work next week.
