Report: Iverson Declines to Play in China

In a report courtesy of, sources have stated that Allen Iverson has eventually decided against playing in China.

Another website,, has also picked up the report, and wrote:


"According to the Beijing Youth Daily, which got the information yesterday from a source in Foshan, Allen Iverson’s unlikely to play in China. “It is unlikely he will play for us,” a source in charge of Foshan Basketball only said.

Prior to that, Foshan contacted Iverson’s managers but with no follow-up results. “Allen Iverson was contacted, but no further step in the progress has been made,” the source said. “And we have not talked about the CBA issues the amount Iverson asked for created.” Allen Iverson asked for too much money. Even if he could bring publicity and interest for the Chinese league, risks were way too big"


Have we seen the last of Allen Iverson? It was just like yesterday when A.I sat at the NBA's finest throne. Now, he's on the verge of having forced to retire because of the lack of interest from the free agency pool. Teams are afraid of the baggage that Iverson would bring alongside him. Would there be somebody who would take the gamble? If somebody did on Tracy McGrady and Shaquille O'Neal, you would never know.
