Report: Allen Iverson to Sign With Turkish Team

by October 25, 2010

The rumors appear to be true. With no interest from NBA squads, The Answer is reportedly taking his talents to Turkey: “Allen Iverson has agreed in principle to sign an incentive-laden, two-year, $4 million contract with Besiktas of the Turkish professional league, sources told Yahoo! Sports on Sunday night. Iverson plans to sign the contract this week, the sources said, and is expected to report to Besiktas the week of Oct. 31. Iverson’s contract will give him an opt-out clause after this season. There’s no escape clause during the season for Iverson to leave Turkey and return to the NBA. Iverson, 35, could make his debut for Besiktas on Nov. 6 in a game against Bornova. Besiktas played its first game of the season on Oct. 19 and is 1-1 in league standings.”
