Allen Iverson is not retired from the NBA. Not officially, not in his mind. He wants another shot. NBA GMs want to see some evidence he still has enough game and will not be a disruption in the locker room, but Iverson has turned down the chance to play in China (he played exhibitions but that’s it) and Tuesday shot down an offer to play in the D-League. So he sits, waiting.
But when he does retire, he might want to come back and be a consultant with the Sixers.
That’s what his agent Gary Moore said, via the Philadelphia Inquirer. Moore met with Sixers owner Josh Harris and team executive about “reconnecting Iverson with the 76ers.”
“Once he does (retire), I want to ensure that Josh Harris and (Philly CEO) Adam Aron know how much Allen appreciates what Philadelphia has meant to him, what the NBA has meant to him,” Moore said, “and to someday come back and be a consultant to them, to help them do certain things.”
That might be a good fit, Iverson is an icon. He can certainly help in some roles.
But for now he wants a role on the court, but he’s going to have to earn that with some steps back he doesn’t seem willing to take.
