Iverson to Memphis? GM not confirming offer

The Memphis Grizzlies general manager refuses to confirm whether the team has made a formal offer to Allen Iverson.

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.
