Team manager Murat Murtezaoglu told The Associated Press the 11-time NBA All-Star "did not feel ready" to play Friday and instead watched from the stands as his new team beat Oyak Renault 87-81.

Murtezaoglu said he expects Iverson to make his debut at Besiktas' European Cup home game against Hemofarm Stada on Tuesday.

Iverson agreed to a $4 million, two-year contract with Besiktas after no NBA team offered him a contract for the season.

Iverson is 17th on the NBA's career scoring list with 24,368 points in a 14-year career with Philadelphia, Denver, Detroit and Memphis. He won the league's Most Valuable Player award in 2001.
