Latest On Allen Iverson

While the Lakers reportedly had some level of interest in Allen Iverson, it appears the 11-time All-Star could be headed out of the country rather than to an NBA roster. According to Primera Hora (via Sportando), Puerto Rico's Indios de Mayaguez is close to offering a contract to Iverson, who has also received offers from Venezuela, Iran, and the Philippines.

We heard last week that Iverson was drawing interest from the Venezuelan and Puerto Rican professional basketball leagues, and that Venezuela's Guaros de Lara had made him a formal offer. Indios de Mayaguez is waiting to determine the availability of one or two of the team's other players before deciding whether to extend an offer to Iverson, according to manager Luis Vargas.
