Allen Iverson is going to have a hard time to find a job

By Anthony Caruso III

Allen Iverson is one of the most prolific scorers in NBA history. But it’s going to be very hard for him to find a job for next season. Not even his old coach Larry Brown wants him.

Iverson averaged a career-low 17.4 points per game in 54 games with Detroit. He appeared in 54 games with 50 starts last season after being acquired for Chauncey Billups, among others. The Iverson trade destroyed the Pistons chemistry and called in-house problems. He is also coming off of a leg injury, which called him to miss several games.

Iverson is no longer the superstar player that he was in Philadelphia for nearly 12 years, where he appeared in nearly 700 games (697) as a member of the 76ers, but the team is not willing to bring him back. Iverson made $20,840,625 last season in the final year of his contract. He will not get anywhere’s near that in this free agent market.

Iverson did not like coming off the bench last season in Detroit. And he may not like it if he becomes a bench player again, even if it’s making a big salary.
