Allen Iverson was recently offered an opportunity to play in the D-League, and as you can imagine, he respectfully declined that offer. In all honesty, any shot of him playing in the NBA again seems very slim.
But that doesn’t mean that he won’t be involved in the Sixers organization in some way. They may bring him in as a consultant eventually.
Moore was in Philadelphia visiting with Sixers owner Josh Harris and CEO Adam Aron about reconnecting Iverson with the 76ers. Iverson led the Sixers to the 2001 NBA Finals and is cemented as one of the franchise’s all-time great players. He is the franchise leader in 40-point games (76) and three-pointers (885), and is second behind Hal Greer in points (19,931). He had two stints with the Sixers, and last played for them in 2009-10.
Moore said there are no immediate plans for the 37-year-old Iverson to retire. ‘Once he does do that, I want to ensure that Josh Harris and 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.’
