Colton Iverson, whose rights were renounced by the Celtics last month, will play in Israel next season, according to Sportando (Twitter link). The 7’0″ center has agreed to a contract with Maccabi Tel Aviv.
Boston had owned the rights to Iverson since making him the No. 53 selection in the 2013 draft after buying the pick from the Pacers. Iverson played for the Celtics’ summer league team in July, but was given almost no chance of making the regular-season roster because Boston already has 16 players with guaranteed contracts.
Iverson, 27, had hoped to catch on with another NBA team before training camp, but apparently no invitation was forthcoming. He has spent the past three seasons with teams in Turkey and Spain.
