Allen Iverson Won’t Join Dominican Republic Team
SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (AP) — The manager for Allen Iverson says the former NBA star will not play for a team in the Dominican Republic.
Gary Moore says Iverson has not signed nor is he considering signing with any team.
Earlier Thursday, Pueblo Nuevo team president Milton Nunez told The Associated Press the 36-year-old guard would play for his team.
Moore says Iverson is “shocked” by Nunez’s announcement.
Moore says Iverson is still working out, “waiting for another opportunity.”
Iverson left the NBA in 2010. He was the NBA’s MVP in 2001, when he led the Philadelphia 76ers to the NBA finals. In 14 seasons in the NBA, he averaged 26.7 points. He has also played in Turkey.
