If he will come off the bench, he will do it for the NBA champions IMO.

Iverson for the MLE... there's about 30 teams that would take him on for that money...

seriously he's not going to have a problem finding a job next year, but it will probably be an MLE contract.. with 2010 just around the corner and teams crying bad economy he's hitting the market at a pretty rough time, but he'll definetly be on someones roster and it won't be a bottom feeder

Any of the teams hurting for attendance would likely sign him for at least the MLE. From a business standpoint Iverson is still a big draw, and would likely generate a good deal more cash than he costs in most markets. The real question is what team would Iverson be willing to sign for: is he willing to be the show pony on a scrub team...or will he accept a pittance to try and win a ring.

Iverson is the next Nate Archibald. He's going to win an NBA Championship as the sidekick of LeBron James.

Remember Nate Archibald won his first and only NBA Championship Ring playing alongside Larry Bird.

Tiny Archibald was also the franchise player of the Kansas City Kings back in the 1970's, and the last NBA player to led the NBA in Scoring and Assists.

Iverson would be a decent scorer off the bench. He would also provide some great leadership to the Cavaliers 2nd unit.

And what will happen with Mo Williams, Delonte West and Daniel Gibson? Cleveland already has the smallest backcourt of alltime.

Gibson is a Scrub. I hope the Cavs trade him in the off season. He's like a Poor man's version of BJ Armstrong.

Nah, he shouldn't. He is still a talented back court player, and our backup SG is Sasha Vujavic. He'll run and gun with our 2nd unit, I'm all for it.

Boston better hope they get HCA, because they ain't beating a healthy Laker team or Cleveland without it.

Book it

Not Detroit, that's for sure.
Probably the clippers??

I would love to see him end his career with the Sixers for sentimental value.



good old days.

You'd basically have the Sixers circa 2001.

Teams that I think will be interested in AI:

Charlotte [I think Felton will be gone]
Chicago [Ben Gordon will be gone]
Golden State [half the roster won't be there next year]
Minnesota [I could see them interested in him]
New York [He'll want to play in that system]
San Antonio [He'd play for Pop and come off the bench, IMO]

Other than those, I don't see any other team that would be interested.

Charlotte will be his best fit, IMO.

Augustin
Iverson/Bell
Wallace
Diaw/Vlad Rad
Okafor

That's a pretty decent team in the East. Could be a 6th seed.
