PHILADELPHIA – Former National Basketball Association MVP Allen Iverson is contemplating a move to China.

Iverson, who is getting no interest from NBA teams, was contacted by a Chinese team last month, says his agent Gary Moore. Moore declined to name the team or provide more details.


The 35-year-old Iverson is at the tail end of his career and isn't getting any calls from the NBA which opens training camps in two weeks.

"We're very astonished, to say the least, that not one team has contacted us with any interest," Moore said. "I just don't understand it."

If Iverson heads to China he would follow former all-star Stephon Marbury who played last season for Shanxi Zhongyu of the Chinese Basketball Association.

Iverson, the former first overall draft pick in 1996, played just three games for Memphis last year before being shipped to Philadelphia.

Iverson is 17th on the NBA's career scoring list with 24,368 points.
