Rumor: Allen Iverson Plans to Sign With Chinese Basketball Team


Allen Iverson’s NBA career may be over for the time being, but the basketball star seems to have his eyes set on a bigger sports goal — as he is rumored to be checking out the Chinese basketball market. 

Iverson played Sunday night (April 29) with the US Legends against the CBA champs, Stephon Marbury’s Beijing Ducks, at a charity event.

Iverson, 37, arrived in Shanghai on Thursday for a two-week promotional basketball tour, where he will team up with other NBA stars including Dennis Rodman, Clyde Drexler, Shawn Kemp to play against three Chinese Basketball Association teams in seven games.

He’s said to be hoping to make his stay in China a long-term visit.
