Three years ago, the Celtics bought the 53rd pick in the 2013 draft from the Indiana Pacers, then used it to select Colorado State center Colton Iverson.  Boston has maintained Iverson's rights ever since, with the seven-footer spending the last three seasons overseas in Turkey and Spain.  Now it appears the C's are finally letting him go:

Iverson suited up for the Celtics summer squads in 2013 and 2014, but he never made it to training camp.  With 16 players already on fully-guaranteed contracts for 2016-17, there clearly wasn't going to be any room for him on the roster this year.

This allows Iverson the chance to catch on wherever he can, but there may not be much interest in him around the NBA considering he's already 27 years old:

The peak of Iverson's Celtics tenure likely came in July of 2013 when he outperformed Fab Melo in summer league.
