Allen Iverson says he's signing with the Memphis Grizzlies
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.
