Iverson Refutes Dominican Republic Report

10:10pm Gary Moore, Iverson's agent, says that Allen has not signed nor is considering signing with any team, according to the Associated Press (via ESPN.com).

It's odd that Nunez would make such an announcement, especially if it wasn't true. Iverson was reportedly shocked by earlier reports that he had agreed to a deal.    

3:15pm Allen Iverson has reportedly signed a one-month contract in the Dominican Republic to play for Pueblo Nuevo, according to BasketballDominicano.com (via Sportando). Team president Milton Nunez said Iverson will arrive this weekend and will earn about $22K, according to the report.

Iverson, who last played in the NBA in 2009/10 with the 76ers, had drawn interest from a number of international professional leagues, including those in Puerto Rico and Venezuela. The 36-year-old, who scored more than 24,000 career points for the Sixers, Nuggets, Pistons, and Grizzlies, is still hoping to make his way back into the NBA.
