In a surprising turn of events, it seems Allen Iverson may find his new home in the Staples Center. It won’t be suiting up for the champs though, but rather playing alongside Baron Davis and the Los Angles Clippers.

The L.A Times reports Iverson and the Clippers are in “very serious talks” to land the All-Star guard. Iverson’s camp is looking for a one-year deal worth the mid-level exception of $5.8 million. The Heat, which were thought to be the favorites to land A.I., are looking to offer only $2 million.

If the Clippers are able to land Iverson, their potential starting five could be explosive next season. Baron Davis and A.I. in the backcourt, with Blake Griffin, Al Thornton, and Chris Kaman/Marcus Camby in the paint.

Eric Gordon off the bench makes the Clips a darkhorse to make some serious noise.
