WEDNESDAY, 12:06pm: According to a Sportando report, Mets de Guaynabo of the Puerto Rican league turned down a proposal that would have brought Iverson to the team for the maximum salary allowed ($5,000 per week).

MONDAY, 2:32pm: NBA teams may not be fighting for Allen Iverson's services these days, but non-NBA clubs are still showing interest in the longtime 76ers star. Iverson has engaged in discussions with Puerto Rico's professional basketball league about a possible deal, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.
According to Wojnarowski, the league's commissioner is attempting to sell Puerto Rico to Iverson as a way of working his way back to the NBA. The league hopes to convince Iverson to fly down to take a closer look at the possibility of playing on the island.
Iverson has been out of the NBA since he appeared in 28 games for the Grizzlies and Sixers in 2009/10. After playing in Turkey in 2010/11, the 36-year-old returned to America and has been working out in hopes of making an NBA comeback. A former MVP and 11-time All-Star, Iverson ranks 17th on the Association's all-time scoring list.
