Allen Iverson Signing with Maccabi Haifa Rumors Are Spreading [UPDATE]

Allen Iverson, broke and 37, is rumored to be signing with the Israeli team Maccabi Haifa according to an Israeli website. Why Maccabi Haifa? Because the team is traveling to the US to play two exhibition games next month against the Golden State Warriors and Minnesota Timberwolves, and Iverson, obviously, would be a major draw. Iverson vs. Stephen Curry? Where do I sign up? Too bad Ricky Rubio is still recovering from his injury.

[UPDATE: The rumors, sadly, have been debunked.]

Iverson’s financial problems have been well-chronicled, but this could be an opportunity to begin digging his way out. [via Point Forward Pro]
