“Basketball Wives” producers have convinced Tami Roman to return for another season and she could be joining two new castmates tied to NBA great Byron Scott.

As The Blast first reported, Roman had decided she was done with the reality show and would not be returning for the next season. We’re told she wanted to branch out and explore other opportunities.

But sources close to Roman tell us producers came back and offered her a new deal she could not refuse. We’re told the offer included options for other opportunities and projects at VH1 aside from “Basketball Wives.”

The new season begins filming later this week and Tami will be joined by series stars Evelyn Lozada, Shaunie O’Neal, Jackie Christie and Jennifer Williams.

Sources close to production tell The Blast that producers are in talks to lock down Byron Scott’s girlfriend, Cecilia Gutierrez, along with the NBA legend’s son Thomas’ wife, Kristen Scott. Thomas is a former Lakers assistant coach.
