Allen Iverson says he's signing with the Memphis Grizzlies

September 9, 2009 |  7:58 am

Allen Allen Iverson announced on his Twitter page this morning that he is joining the Memphis Grizzlies.

"God Chose Memphis as the place that I will continue my career. I met with Mr. Heinsley, Chris Wallace and my next head coach Lionel Hollins."

Iverson later wrote: "I feel that they are committed to developing a winner and I know that I can help them to accomplish that. I feel that I can trust them."

The Clippers at one time were rumored to be one of the front-runners to sign the 10-time All Star, but as usual for the Clippers, things didn't work out.
