Friday March 23rd, 2012

Allen Iverson is back in professional basketball -- well, sort of. The Associated Press reports that A.I. has signed a one-month contract to play in a regional basketball league in the Dominican Republic.

Pueblo Nuevo club president Milton Nunez told the AP that Iverson will arrive Sunday, when he's slated to play his first game against GUG in Santiago province.

Iverson's salary with his new team was not revealed. Iverson played 14 seasons in the NBA, mostly with the Philadelphia 76ers but also with the Denver Nuggets, Detroit Pistons and briefly the Memphis Grizzlies. He was the 1997 Rookie of the Year, the 2001 MVP and a two-time MVP of the All-Star Game, and his 24,368 points rank 17th in NBA history. He last played at the NBA level on April 14, 2010.
