"As a result, we will be ending our contractual agreement with Allen, which will allow both parties to move forward. We wish Allen the best."

Iverson appeared in parts of three games with the Grizzlies but did not start. He missed the first three games of the season with a hamstring injury.

Iverson averaged 12.3 points and 3.7 assists in those games, playing just over 22 minutes a game.
