Allen Iverson Willing To Play In NBA Developmental League, According To Report

Former NBA star Allen Iverson is still flirting with a return to basketball, and may play for a minor-league team to do so.

Former NBA MVP Allen Iverson remains unclaimed by an NBA team two years after last playing in the league for the Philadelphia 76ers, but rumors continue to circulate about a potential return. One previous stumbling block was that Iverson was unwilling to play in the NBA Development League or any other minor-league system, but he has since changed his stance, according to ESPN's Chris Broussard:

With hopes of getting one last shot in the NBA, former All-Star and league MVP Allen Iverson is contemplating playing minor league basketball, according to a person close to the situation.

Iverson is willing to play in the Caribbean, in South America or even in the D-League if it gives him a chance to return to the NBA, the source said.

No NBA team has expressed much interest in Iverson, but the Los Angeles Lakers' D-League affiliate has reached out to him before, according to Broussard.

If that fails, at least Iverson has an offer to play minor-league soccer, according to a CBS Sports report.
