Allen Iverson has agreed to terms with the Memphis Grizzlies and will sign a one-year deal by weeks end, a league source told Yahoo! Sports on Wednesday.

Hes expected to sign a $3.5 million contract, with incentives to make more based on performance.

God chose Memphis as the place that I will continue my career, Iverson wrote on his Twitter page on Wednesday morning. I met with [owner Mike Heisley], [GM] Chris Wallace and my next head coach, Lionel Hollins.

After this, I'm done with the grizzlies. if someday Heisley sells the team maybe I'll be back to support them. It was a true pleasure to talk to you, guys!

It's pretty sad that you'd stop rooting for the Grizzlies because of this. I know this wasn't the best move hell but trading Gasol was worse than this and you stuck around. No reason to walk out now.

Williams and Young can say goodbye to the potential minutes they were going to get, because they're all going to Iverson now.

This move is the last drop, not the reason. This is just a nonsense. It doesn't help anybody in the grizzlies team except for Heisley if Iverson is able to increase the attendance. I'm fed up of this front office that makes all their moves like a weathercock in changing winds... They do not have any plan for this team. Even Gasol's trade, being really bad, made more sense than most of the deals this team has done in the past... Really, with this owner and Chris Wallace there is no hope for the Grizzlies as a basketball team. So that's why I'm leaving for a while.

What are the chances we still sign Mike Taylor? Either way I will remain optimistic about this team. I think we could have done alot better with our cap space but whether we like it or not this is our team next year and I will support them no matter what.

Just became a Grizzlies fan...Cause Iverson is that dude...this move hurts no one. good addition for 1 year and see if it pans out. Iverson will help Conley and Mayo develop and put points on the board. Great move for the Grizzlies!

I have a question for you Berraco...why would you quit on your team cause of a one year signing? after 1 year if it doesnt work out, then they will probably let iverson go. Im not going to act like im a huge huge grizzly fan, but many others who are fans of Iverson...just like me will be following this team now. Thats a good thing. Iverson, Mayo, and Gay...thats alot of talent. If Randolph gets it right and if Thabeet does well...this looks like a team that can surprise alot of people this season.

Some things i hear about iverson are that he will take away all the minutes and his attitude. but its simply not true. Detroit was a bad situation for him...give him shot and see what happens.

Just watch all the new guys enter this forum once we start winning games and make are triumphant return to the playoffs and then knock the Lakers off the top spot in the West and then win the Finals.

Then who'll be laughing?

All right guys, calm down. It's only a one year deal! What can't possibly get any worse. I think it's worth a try... We'll have to see.

Haven't been posting because I honestly have nothing to say about the signing.

Can someone replace Emeka and Monta in my avatar with Lee and James Harden?
