MEMPHIS, November 17 – The Memphis Grizzlies have parted ways with disgruntled guard Allen Iverson after just two months, the National Basketball Association team announced Monday.

"The Grizzlies and Allen Iverson have come to a mutual agreement that because of personal matters that forced him to leave the team on November 7, Allen will step away from the game at this time," Grizzlies general manager Chris Wallace said.

"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.
