The writing was on the wall for Colton.

Colton Iverson's dreams of playing in the NBA will have to wait at least one more year.  He has agreed signed on with a team in Spain.

Colton Iverson has signed a one-year deal with the Spanish team Baskonia, according to a Euroleague press release Tuesday morning. The Boston Celtics will still hold the 7-footer's NBA rights.

With the Tyler Zeller trade and an overloaded roster, Iverson probably saw the writing on the wall and decided to get a contract for next year.  It is a one year deal and the Celtics still own his rights.  So there's a good chance that he could eventually find a hope on this team next summer (especially with all the contracts set to expire at the end of the season).  But for now he's still stashed overseas.
