Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

NBA D-League co-M.V.P. Othyus Jeffers' stint overseas has come to an end, no long after it started.

With the NBA D-League season over and done with, and NBA Summer League not starting up until July, minor league athletes now have plenty of time on their hands. But unlike most players in The Association, players from the D-League usually take advantage of "the offseason" to venture out overseas and make some of the money they were unable to earn while hitting the NBADL hardwood.

There's no rest for the weary.

But due to a rather strange formality, D-League co-M.V.P. Othyus Jeffers' stint in the Philippines has come to an abrupt end, not long after it started. Take a look below (or click here instead) for a further explanation as to why.

Tropang Texters coach Norman Black confirmed Jeffers failed to get clearance from the NBA, although Minnesota already gave him the go-signal.

"The Timberwolves released him, but the NBA wants to hold on to his rights until June 30," explained Black about the situation that left Talk `N Text without an import in its game against Alaska.

Jeffers was reeled in provide quite the necessary boost at this juncture in the team's season. Instead, former NBA player Rodney Carney will replace him on Talk 'N Text's roster during the rather crucial time.
