Allen Iverson is considering playing minor league basketball, according to a source.
Iverson is willing to play in the D-League, Caribbean or South America if it means another chance to play in the NBA.
"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."
Iverson's interest in returning comes as he faces some financial trouble.
The Los Angeles Lakers' D-League affiliate, the Los Angeles Defenders, has contacted Iverson's reps several times, but nothing materialized, according to the source.
Iverson is likely to give up his return attempt if he doesn't sign with a club by the Feb. 26th All-Star Game.
