Kind of a misleading title. The source is not ESPN. It's a Mason and Ireland radio segment. The link you provided gives the caption:

ESPN NBA analyst Jon Barry calls in to talk about the latest Lakers trade rumors involving Pau Gasol. Allen Iverson could have been a Laker, John Ireland explains.


Not seeing any other sources saying Iverson is willing to play D-league ball as well.

it was reported on thursday by ESPN. saw it on the bottom line on TV
http://espn.go.com/nba/story/_/id/75820 ... ource-says

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.

"Allen only wants to play if there's a possibility that it leads to the NBA," the person said, speaking on condition of anonymity. "That's the only way he would go to one of these lower leagues. He wants to get back to the NBA and leave the game on his terms."

When ai3 played wit Melo, there was a long stretch he deferred to melo p utting up double digit assists. If he plays that style n kept in shape, he's still probably quicker than all our pgs..... just keep him away from commerce n morongos casino, and its worth the vet min

If we're willing to give Arenas a chance, I don't know why we wouldn't even try out AI in the D-league. In his last season, he put up 13 points and 4 assists on 41% shooting. If he shows that he can still perform at that level and he's motivated, then it couldn't hurt.

If AI can still ball it's worth a look in d-league, being on a real contender after all of his failures.. if he's in shape and if his attitude is humble.

There's a heck of alot of if's in there, worth a look though. It's a long shot and a low quality return, what else is there to consider though? JR is gone, Brooks is impossible.. trades are all stalled thanks to D12 and D.Will.

It's Arenas/AI pretty much.............. our bench BLOWS they can't exactly hurt it much.

If the Lakers are still interested, then who do you pick out of Arenas/Iverson/Sessions?

If you pick up one of them, you can add Blake to a trade with Pau and still have an OK backup PG.

AI's done. But it would be interesting to see him in the Dleague just for the lulz. Don't really like AI but I find it admirable that he would go to the Dleague to prove he still go it. He definitely wants one more shot at a ring

:man10:

He wants money and money only. He just wants to get paid because he is broke.

Winning a ring would be a bonus though b/c he could sell that as well.

If he's willing to audition for the Defenders for a chance to play with us then I'm fine with it.

actually so am I. If he looks good, we win. If he looks bad, we don't sign him. What's the big deal?

Iverson set to play in Venezuela
By HOOPSWORLD
Basketball News & NBA Rumors
EmailPrint0 Comments
Former NBA MVP Allen Iverson reportedly has accepted an offer to play in Venezuela.

Iverson, who is facing serious financial difficults, is expected to sign with Guaros de Lara.

The four-time scoring champion was unable to drum up interest from an NBA club and was left to choose between offers from Venezuela and Puerto Rico.

Iverson played briefly for Turkish club Besiktas Cola Turka in 2010 before returning to the United State to undergo calf surgery. He has not play in the NBA since 2009.

An 11-time All-Star, Iverson was ordered to pay $860,000 last month to settle a debt with an Atlanta jeweler and resulting legal fees.
