Iverson signed in China – so far, just for an exhibition tour in October
Allen Iverson has finally decided to pursue his basketball career in China, and has to take what’s available right now – a contract for a handful of exhibition games. It remains possible that the former NBA MVP signs with a professional team in China before start of the season, but so far the talks didn’t result in a deal.
The exhibition games will take place October 18 – 28 in four different cities in China. Iverson will clearly be the biggest star of the event – as he unveiled the tour’s poster, he saw his portrait in the fine company of a retired NBA player Jason “White Chocolate” Williams and AND1 streetballers The Professor and Bone Collector.
Iverson said, “Nice” when he first saw the poster, then turned back again to study the details closely.
