Iverson nixes D-League


Eleven-time NBA all-star Allen Iverson has turned down an opportunity to return to basketball with the Dallas Mavericks’ Development League affiliate. Iverson posted a series of tweets on Tuesday explaining his decision to decline an offer from the Texas Legends. Iverson, the 2001 NBA MVP with the Philadelphia 76ers, says, “While I think the D-League is a great opportunity, it is not the route for me.” Gary Moore, Iverson’s manager, confirmed the decision with The Associated Press. The 37-year-old Iverson has not played in the NBA since the 2009-10 season. He had a brief stop with a pro team in Turkey. – AP
