Default Re: Allen Iverson says he's retiring

I guess this means Louis Williams will go back to being a sixth man for the rest of this season when he returns.

Financially, this is a good move for the Sixers. They are not going to make the playoffs this year, barring massive improvement, so they will get more attendance through AI being there.

Williams is probably another year away from starting anyway.

But the better team for AI to go to is Charlotte. They are not going to re-sign Felton to a huge deal, since he turned down one this year. They could sign AI, adding that scorer in the lineup besides SJax that they badly need, trade away Felton, and then groom DJ Augustin to take over the starting spot next season.
