Allen Iverson said that working in the 76ers' front office would be a "top honor" for him.
"I may not know everything about physical talent or anything like that," said Iverson, "but I have a sharp mind when it comes to that look, being able to look into somebody's eyes to tell if they are going to be in the foxhole with you tonight or if they are not. To me, I am a basketball genius and I really believe that, so at any capacity I could help this franchise, that is what I am going to do, whatever they ask me to do." Larry Brown has been pushing for Iverson to earn a front office role with the Sixers, and Iverson is clearly interested. It'll be interesting to see if Sam Hinkie would like to bring him into the fold. Fri, Jun 19, 2015 09:30:00 AM

Allen Iverson would be interested in taking on a front office role for the 76ers.

"I would like to be even in that war room," Iverson replied. "Even if they don’t go with my decision or whatever, just to have an opinion and putting out what I think and trusting the organization to do what’s right." There is no word on whether or not the feeling is mutual, but considering that the 76ers are currently starting players such as Luc Mbah a Moute and Jason Richardson, they are not exactly in win-now mode and it's hard to imagine Iverson buying into the concept of tanking.

Allen Iverson will officially announce his retirement from the NBA at the Sixers' home opener on Oct. 30, according to Chris Broussard.

This is just a formality, as Iverson hasn't played in the league since 2010.

Allen Iverson will officially announce his retirement from the NBA this week, according to SLAM.

We're talking about retirement? Iverson hasn't played in the league since 2010, when he accepted a (short-lived) deal with Besiktas in Turkey, and he declined an offer to play in the D-League last January. His late-career antics have clouded what a truly unique athlete he was in his prime. The 6'0" scoring guard won the MVP award while leading Philly to the Finals in 2000-01, and he finishes his NBA career as an 11-time All-Star with averages of 26.7 points, 6.2 assists and 2.2 steals in a whopping 41.1 minutes per game.

Allen Iverson has decided to pass on an offer from the Mavericks' D-League affiliate.

Iverson badly wants back in the NBA, but he's not willing to submit himself to buses and games for the Texas Legends in places like Sioux Falls. "I thank Donnie [Nelson] and Dallas for the consideration and while I think the D-League is a great opportunity, it is not the route for me," Iverson tweeted Tuesday. He apparently fails to realize that putting together a non-disruptive season while swallowing his pride would do wonders for his image. Now 37, Iverson is just about out of chances to get back in the league.

Allen Iverson still hopes to return to the NBA, but he also remains interested in signing another contract in China.

It's very unlikely that an NBA team would gamble on Iverson at this point in his career, given his age, attitude, and how poorly he played with the Nuggets, Sixers and Grizzlies from 2008-2010. As for playing in China, Iverson said "the team that wants me to join has got to show me that they really mean it, like 'hey we really need you'." It still doesn't sound like he's ready to accept a bit role off any team's bench.

The Knicks will not pursue free agent Allen Iverson, sources tell the New York Post.

It's not exactly breaking news. Iverson wants back in the NBA, but he hasn't played since looking inept with the Sixers in 2010. We'd be stunned if any team takes a chance on the future Hall of Famer at this point.

Allen Iverson, who delivered the game ball in an emotional pregame moment prior to Game 6, says he still wants to play professional basketball, but realizes it may not happen in the NBA.

Iverson would have to drastically change his mindset and accept being a role player, and even if that happened, a return to the NBA is not likely.

Allen Iverson will reportedly play for Pueblo Nuevo of the Dominican Republic for a month.

Pueblo Nuevo is part of a regional basketball league in the Dominican. He's expected to arrive Sunday and play that very same day, according to the team. Now 36, Iverson is grasping at straws to make money.

Updating a previous report, Allen Iverson has turned down an offer from a team in Venezuela and will instead remain in the U.S.

A.I. has money problems and is hoping to showcase himself for another shot at an NBA contract. He has considered joining a D-League team, but either way he faces long odds of making another NBA roster.

The Venezuelan team Guaros de Lara has reportedly reached an agreement with Allen Iverson.

Iverson turned down an offer to play in Puerto Rico and had considered a stint in the D-League, with the ultimate goal of returning to the NBA. In addition to pure love of the game, A.I. has mounting legal bills and debts, including the $860,000 he owes to a jeweler.

Allen Iverson is reportedly open to going to the D-League "if there's a possibility that it leads to the NBA."

We've heard Iverson connected to Puerto Rico, Venezuela and now the D-League. Until he actually puts pen to paper somewhere, Iverson rumors will continue to pop up. He's been determined to make a comeback since before the lockout ended.

Allen Iverson's deal with the Venezuelan team Guaros de Lara is reportedly "80 percent done."

Iverson was initially expected to be contemplating a move to the Puerto Rican league, but now it looks like he'll head to Venezuela in the hopes of resurrecting his career and finding a way back into the NBA.

The Puerto Rican basketball league is in talks to sign Allen Iverson for their upcoming season.

Iverson's NBA career is almost certainly over, but he still needs money. The 11-time All-Star would serve as a draw in Puerto Rico, much like he did in Turkey last year. According to Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski, Iverson could make as much as $20,000 a month plus living expenses by playing in Puerto Rico.

There are a lot of rumors flying around the web and Twitter that the Celtics are thinking about signing free agent Allen Iverson.

A Boston Herald brief take suggested that Danny Ainge is an Iverson fan and that he could end up in Boston. That sounds like quite a longshot to us, but you never know. If he does end up in Boston (or anywhere else), he's going to come off the bench, even if he's still in NBA playing shape. In other words, owners in standard leagues would probably be wise to stay away unless he ends up in an ideal situation.
