Allen Iverson one step closer to Besiktas

'We are in very serious negotiations with [Besiktas ColaTurka Istanbul],' Iverson's manager Gary Moore said. 'Istanbul is beautiful from everything we've learned. It's not that far from the U.S., and the competition is good, which makes it all attractive. Allen wants to play basketball'. said his manager,

The player, who had some difficult seasons in the last years, would make $2 million under the one-year contract.
