Allen Iverson to the D-League?

The Texas Legends of the D-League are lobbying for veteran point guard Allen Iverson to try to work his way back to the NBA by playing for the Dallas Mavericks’ Development League affiliate, according to D-League sources.
Sources told ESPN.com that the Legends, who are co-owned by Mavericks president of basketball operations Donnie Nelson, ramped up their season-long pursuit of Iverson on Monday, offering him the chance to resurrect his career.
Iverson has resisted the Legends’ overtures so far this season — as well as a similar offer last season — but sources say that the Legends are trying again now because they’ve moved back to the top of the list in the D-League’s waiver line, meaning they’d have an unobstructed path to signing Iverson if he could be convinced to put his name in the D-League’s player pool.
