David Aldridge is reporting that former 76ers star guard Allen Iverson is about to sign a 1-year deal for $3.5 million with the Memphis Grizzlies.

Aldridge is reporting that the deal is expected to be finalized in the next 24 to 48 hours and would include incentives that could up the deal's value. Iverson, who last season fought a back injury and played sparingly for the Detroit Pistons, had been lately linked to a possible deal with the Grizzlies and was earlier said to be considering the Charlotte Bobcats and coach Larry Brown.
