Allen Iverson and Jason Williams to Play in an Exhibition Game in China

by October 03, 2012

Jason Williams, no stranger to exhibition games on foreign soil, will be joined by Allen Iverson and a bunch of other former NBAers in China this weekend. From the Sporting News: “Former NBA players Allen Iverson and Jason Williams have been added to a roster of a team coached by Hall of Famer Tiny Archibald that will play the 2012 Chinese Basketball Association’s champion Beijing Ducks on Saturday in Beijing. Iverson, an 11-time NBA All-Star, and Williams, who played on the Miami Heat’s first NBA championship team in 2006, will play on a roster that includes Damon Jones, Charoy Bentley, Shane Burrell, Zendon Hamilton, J.R. Inman, J. R. Reid and Guy Dupuy. […] Iverson, 37, the 2001 NBA MVP, would like to return to the NBA but has found no interest. He last played for the Philadelphia 76ers in 2010. China, he said, is another option, and this appearance will provide him further exposure in China.”
