Iverson tweeted Wednesday that Memphis had made him an offer, and ESPN.com reported general manager Chris Wallace confirmed the Grizzlies had made a formal offer. But Wallace Thursday through a team spokesman would only say he did not confirm an offer to ESPN.com.
``We have had a strong level of interest in Allen Iverson since the beginning of free agency and we have made that very clear to him,'' Wallace said in a statement.
Iverson's agent, Leon Rose, did not immediately return a message left at his office by The Associated Press on Thursday.
Oddsmakers from online sports book SPORTSBETTING.com have made the Grizzlies 200/1 long shots to win the 2010 NBA Finals. Considering his better days are behind him, Iverson may or may not improve Memphis’s odds if the franchise signs him.
