Iverson to Turkey?

For 76ers fans still following the career of former all-star guard Allen Iverson, the latest news -- according to Yahoo! Sports -- is that AI is close to signing a deal to play in Turkey, which could be worth up to $2 million with bonuses. Yahoo is reporting that a stumbling block to the deal is Iverson's reluctance to agree to allow the team to fine him more than 1% of his salary.
