No Answer in New York

As of today, the New York Knickerbockers are no longer pursuing free-agent guard Allen Iverson, ESPN is reporting. The Knicks source told ESPN, "We are definitely not pursuing him anymore,". Iverson officially became a free-agent on Thursday after clearing all waivers.

Now what? Is this it for Allen Iverson? Is the answer retirement? It is clear the disgruntled guard is frustrated with playing time and would need to find a team where he could immediately start. The funniest part of this whole situation, and correct me if I'm wrong, is that Allen Iverson wanted to play in Memphis.

@AllenIverson - Memphis is a place that I would love to play. The Grizzlies have good young players with a great upside. I love the city of Memphis too - 6:51PM August 27th

Then...

@AllenIverson - I feel that they are committed to developing a winner and I know that I can help them to accomplish that. I feel that I can trust them. - 10:14AM September 9th

If I had to predict where Iverson will end up, I'd say retirement. I can't see any other team in the league taking a chance on him. It would make sense for a team like the Knicks to gamble on him, but since they declined to make an offer to him it's probably over for Allen. There's no doubt it my mind he can still play the game. He could probably even put up 23-25 PPG, but nobody wants the baggage that comes with him. Sorry, there is no answer in this equation.
