As I was buying coffee this morning from Starbucks I heard a man talking about Allen Iverson. He was talking to another man about a possible destination for Iverson.
He said the Pacers and Thunder were offering around $5.85 million for a one-year contract.
The Rockets were also offering $5 million for a season.
The man said he spoke with the Sixers and they were not quite on the same page, but said if they changed their mind they would be open to discuss this anytime down the road.
Rose said he talked to Larry Bird and Bird said he would love to see Iverson team with Danny Granger and thought that Granger could benefit from Iverson and understands Iverson still has the abilities he had from when he was in Philadelphia and Denver. He said he thinks Granger and Iverson can easily be the highest scoring duo in the league.
Bird also thinks Iverson can still tickets.
I went over to this man and asked him who he was. It turned out he was Iverson's agent Leon Rose. I started asking him questions about what I heard them talking about and he said he can not talk with me about those.
But he answered one question. When I aked if Iverson was going to Greece Rose responded saying, "No way".
I went to go get my coffee and by the time I was back Rose and the other man with him had left. It seemed to me they did not want this news to leak out which is probably the reason they were talking so quietly.
I just could not resist and had to write about it as soon as I got home from work. This news would probably leak soon anyways. But seems to me that Iverson is heading to one those three teams because they are all probably going to let him start and are offering the money he wants for a year.
To me the best fit would be in Oklahoma because Iverson and Durant could put the Thunder in seventh or eighth seed because of their high-scoring.
I do not like the idea of Iverson and McGrady joining forces because both are coming out with a chip on their shoulder next year and would clash at one point because they both want to be the guy to prove they are still one of the elite players in the league.
The Pacers could also be another great fit and Iverson and Granger along with Troy Murphy can easily lead this team into the playoffs if they work together.
Well there you have it. Be free to comment below on what you think about this.
