Marc Stein of ESPN reports:

After three months away from the game, Rashad McCants is planning to come back to Texas to try to revive his NBA career.

McCants reconnected this week with the D-League’s Texas Legends and has been invited to rejoin the team after leaving the Legends in December to sign a more lucrative contract in China.

The Chinese deal with Lionang Panpan, however, collapsed almost immediately after McCants left Frisco. The former 2005 lottery pick appeared in only three games with the Legends before his departure and hasn’t played organized ball since.

But McCants, who likewise hasn’t played in the NBA since the 2008-09 season, asked to rejoin the Legends after receiving an offer to join the recent flurry of NBA veterans — headlined by Allen Iverson — to sign in Turkey this season. The 26-year-old apparently convinced Legends co-owner and Mavericks president of basketball operations Donnie Nelson that he’s ready to commit to a D-League stint as opposed to signing somewhere in Europe where he can make more money.
