Iverson Tweets Grizzlies Offer

NBA Super Star Allen Iverson is back in the News as a possible player for the Memphis Grizzlies..

And this is news Iverson is making himself.

On his Twitter Page, Iverson wrote this morning -quote- Agent informed me the Grizz made an offer yesterday. Stay Tuned.

I contacted Grizzlies General Manager Chris Wallace this afternoon via e-mail..

Wallace says he won't confirm Iversons' Tweet, other than to state the team has told his agent, Leon Rose, that the Grizzlies have a strong level of interest and have talked with him since the onset of Free Agency back in July..

An early Iverson Tweet said his people informed him a deal is close.

Iverson wrote "To those who think i'm going away, Think again." I'm Ready to return to the NBA Stronger Faster and So much wiser."

Iversons' former Coach, Larry Brown, says the Charlotte Bobcats want the 10-time All-Star, but don't have enough money under the cap to pay him.

The Miami Heat are in the same situation..but, Heat President Pat Riley has told Iverson to call him before he makes any deal.
