Allen Iverson Agrees to Play in Dominican Republic

by March 22, 2012

AI’s attempt to return to the League has been unique, to say the least. The Associated Press reports that the four-time NBA scoring champ is taking his crossover to the Dominican Republic, having signed a one-month deal (reportedly worth $22,000) to play for Pueblo Nuevo: “Former NBA star Allen Iverson is joining a regional basketball league in the Dominican Republic for a month. Team president Milton Nunez told The Associated Press on Thursday the 36-year-old guard will play for Pueblo Nuevo. He declined to say how much Iverson will be paid. Iverson is to arrive Sunday and play for his second-place team that same day against GUG in Santiago province, Nunez said. “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,” Nunez said.”
