Turkish team sets conditions in contract for Iverson


Posted Oct 15 2010 12:20PM

ANKARA, Turkey (AP) -- Turkish basketball team Besiktas Cola Turka says it is expecting a response shortly from former NBA scoring champion Allen Iverson on its conditions to sign a deal.

Sanem Helvacikoylu, in charge of foreign relations for the team, said Friday that Besiktas is a big club and has conditions in the contract, including "penalties.'' She would not elaborate.

But Turkish media has reported that Iverson asked to be exempt from penalties or he would agree to pay a fixed minimal amount.

Helvacikoylu says the talks are ongoing "without interruption.''

Besiktas presented a revised version of the proposed one-year contract to the 11-time NBA All-Star this week.

Iverson is 17th on the NBA's career scoring list with 24,368 points over a 14-year career.
