Allen Iverson to NBA-D League?

The NBA development league has three teams in the state of Texas, where, of course, everything is bigger.  Apparently the past few days, so are the player signings and rumored roster moves.

Last week it was the Texas Legends getting troubled former NBA guard Delonte West, just this morning it was Rio Grande Valley Vipers getting formerly suspended forward  Royce White from Houston Rockets, and now the Legends are making a bid for a former NBA superstar.

Sources tell that the Legends, who are co-owned by Mavericks president of basketball operations Donnie Nelson, are ramping up their season long pursuit of Allen Iverson today, offering him the chance to resurrect his career.

Iverson last played in the NBA in 2009-10 in brief stays with the Memphis Grizzlies and Philadelphia 76ers, but the 37-year-old has resisted opportunities to sign lucrative deals in China because, to date, he’s been reluctant to consider playing anywhere besides the NBA.
