Allen Iverson, unable to get back into the NBA after playing a couple of seasons in Turkey, is negotiating to play in a Puerto Rican league, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo.com reported Monday.
Puerto Rican league officials have been in contact with Iverson's business manager Gary Moore, and the officials from teams in that league are discussing the way they would bid for Iverson.
The Puerto Rican league starts its 30-game season in March, and it pays its stars about $20,000 a month, plus living expenses, Yahoo.com reported. Apparently Iverson, 36, still would like to work his way back to the NBA. He last played in the NBA in 2009-2010, when he averaged 11.3 points for Memphis and Philadelphia.
There are some former NBA players, such as Ike Diogu, in the Puerto Rican league, but rarely do players from that league move to the NBA.
