Philadelphia 76ers great Allen Iverson still wants to play in the NBA, but whenever he officially retires from the game, he would like to return to the team in a consultant role.
Iverson's manager Gary Moore was just in Philadelphia visiting with Sixers owner Josh Harris and CEO Adam Aron about getting the 37-year-old involved with the organization once he steps away from the game for good:
"Once he does do that, I want to ensure that Josh Harris and Adam Aron know how much Allen appreciates what Philadelphia has meant to him, what the NBA has meant to him," Moore said, "and to someday come back and be a consultant to them, to help them do certain things."
Iverson just turned down an offer to join Dallas Mavericks' D-League affiliate, the Texas Legends. The guard took to Twitter to express his gratitude for the offer, but said the D-League was not the right route for him. The guard said he would like to make one last NBA comeback, but understands that his questionable behavior in year's past may prohibit him from getting that chance.
