Larry Brown has a message for Allen Iverson: don't give up.

Iverson's former coach said Friday he thinks the 10-time All-Star "still has a passion to play" and shouldn't retire. An online report this week indicated Iverson had decided to end his career after receiving little interest from NBA teams.

Brown, now coaching the Charlotte Bobcats, said he has talked to Iverson's agent and is seeking to get in touch with him directly.
