ALLEN IVERSON and Delonte West sharing the same backcourt?
It could happen if the Texas Legends get their way.
The Legends, the Development League affiliate of the Dallas Mavericks, signed West, who starred at Saint Joseph's, on Friday. Now, according to a report, they are trying to convince Iverson to join the team.
ESPN.com, citing sources, reported the Legends are pursuing the 37-year-old Iverson, who hasn't played in the NBA since 2009-10. His last game was Feb. 20, 2010 when he scored 13 points and dished three assists in his final start with the Sixers.
He signed up to play the 2010-11 season in Turkey, but lasted only 10 games after a lesion was discovered in his right calf. It was removed in February 2011, but Iverson has been reluctant to play overseas again because he reportedly wants to return to the NBA.
