Brian Bahr/Getty Images (NEW YORK) —  According to a report, Allen Iverson is ready to announce his retirement from the NBA.

The 38-year-old Iverson is an 11-time All-Star, but has not played in the NBA since 2010. 

He was drafted by the Philadelphia 76ers, but also spent time with the Denver Nuggets, Detroit Pistons, and Memphis Grizzlies.

His other career highlights include an appearance in the 2001 NBA Finals, a league MVP award, and four scoring titles.
