Iverson rules out NBA return in D-League
January 29, 2013
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. Iverson was not available for an interview.
Iverson also wrote, ``I realize my actions contributed to my early departure from the NBA.'' The 37-year-old Iverson has not played in the NBA since the 2009-10 season. He had a brief stop with a professional team in Turkey and has played exhibition games in China.
Dallas' Dirk Nowitzki recently passed Iverson for 18th on the NBA's career scoring list.
