(NEW YORK) — Former NBA MVP Allen Iverson is making another attempt to get back into the league. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, Iverson is in discussions to play in the Puerto Rican League.
According to Wojnarowski, Iverson’s business manager Gary Moore has been in talks with basketball officials there, and the league’s teams are involved in a bidding process in order to lure Iverson to Puerto Rico.
The Puerto Rican League begins its 30-game season in March, and pays its players $20,000 a month plus living expenses. Part of the league’s selling point to Iverson is that he can use the platform to get back in the NBA.
A.I. has been out of the NBA for the past two seasons. He spent the 2009-2010 season with the Memphis Grizzlies and Philadelphia 76ers. He currently ranks 17th all-time in points, and sixth all-time in points per game. He spent 14 seasons in league with the Philadelphia 76ers, Denver Nuggets, Detroit Pistons, and Memphis Grizzlies.
