No one in the NBA was interested in Allen Iverson, so I think this is an excellent move for him.
It is good money in Turkey, he can shoot 100x a game, he will be treated like King (no Lebron) and I think they can have like five or six wives in Turkey so he should be good in that area as well.
Here are the details:
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 Sunday night.Good for A.I., maybe he can meet up with Stephon Marbury in China and get on Ustream (no vaseline).
Iverson plans to sign the contract this week, the sources said, and is expected to report to Besiktas the week of Nov. 1.
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.
For someone like Iverson who likes to be the center of attention at all times, he will love being the man in Turkey.
No word on if he got the Villa he was requesting.
