After no NBA team made an offer that interested him, 11-time All-Star Allen Iverson headed to Turkey last season to play basketball, though that didn't turn out so well. Now it's looking like he could be taking his sneakers to Puerto Rico.

Sources tell Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski that "Iverson and Puerto Rico's professional basketball league are engaged in exploratory talks about a possible deal."

At about $20,000 a month plus living expenses, the Puerto Rican league wouldn't exactly be a massive payday for the 36-year-old, but "the league's commissioner is selling Iverson on the chance to work his way back to a possible return to the NBA," Wojnarowski reports.

Two other former NBA players that recently signed with the league, which starts its season in March, are Rashad McCants and Ike Diogu.

Iverson, who is working out in Atlanta in hopes of landing a deal, was the first overall pick in the 1995 draft out of Georgetown, but he hasn't played in the NBA since 2010. Over his career, the guard has averaged 26.7 points, 3.7 rebounds and 6.2 assists per game over 914 contests.
