IVERSON HEADED TO DENVER
Pending league approval, Allen Iverson is going to be a Nugget. And it’s a great deal for the Sixers, especially when you consider they had no leverage.
The 76ers get solid PG Andre Miller, an expiring contract in veteran Joe Smith and 2 1st round picks in next year’s draft, which are likely to be in the 20′s. The Sixers also have their own 1st round pick, almost certain to be a lottery pick and a chance at Greg Oden.
I find this deal even more interesting because Iverson will be hogging some major shots while J.R. Smith and Carmelo Anthony are suspended. When they return, that’s when I predict the fun will begin. Iverson, Anthony and Smith all require a good number of shots per game. It could get ugly on the court if not in the locker room.
