Allen Iverson to play in Turkey?

Weeks after failing to ink a contract in China to follow the footsteps of fellow former All-Star guard Stephon Marbury, sources close to the negotiations have insisted that Allen Iverson remains to reject the idea of completely retiring. Some believe that he would like to play for a few more years, wherever it may be, before hanging up his sneakers for good. It is believed that Turkey might very well be Iverson's next stop.

Several Turkish media outlets have also picked up on the Iverson buzz. Some believe that a deal is already done, but is just undergoing minor polishing with the insertion of some clauses.

If the deal goes through, it is believed that Iverson's deal in Turkey would total to $1.5 Million, including large bonuses and a percentage of advertising revenues.

Iverson averaged 13.9 points and 4.1 assists a game during his second stint with the 76ers last season.
