Philadelphia 76ers Getting Inside 2009-12-01


Philadelphia 76ers Getting Inside 2009-12-01Sixers chairman Ed Snider apparently won't stand in the way if his basketball people decide they want to sign Allen Iverson.

Team president Ed Stefanski, coach Eddie Jordan and senior VP Tony DiLeo met with Iverson and agent Leon Rose Monday in Dallas. Snider released this statement: "While nothing has been decided, Ed Stefanski is the president and general manager of the Philadelphia 76ers and I support him and his basketball decisions."

Jordan deemed the two-hour meeting "good" and said the two sides had "a lot of things to talk about. We'll see what happens in another few days."

The Sixers are considering Iverson to fill a need created when starting point guard Lou Williams fracturing his jaw, an injury that is expected to sideline him for eight weeks.

Jordan said Iverson would bring "an aggressive scoring mentality -- a guy that could take over games, even in this stage of his career. He's a guy that's been to the top (the NBA Finals). He'd be an extra weapon for us."

Stefanski also released a statement, saying the meeting "covered a variety of topics, all of which we would prefer to keep between the team and Allen. At this time, both parties remain non-committal regarding a final decision. We will continue to discuss internally whether or not to pursue this course. The Sixers will have no further comment at this time, and further updates will be provided as they become available."

Iverson, 34, spent his first 10 1/2 NBA seasons with the Sixers. His best year was 2000-01, when he was named league MVP and led the Sixers to a 56-26 record and the Finals.

MAVERICKS 104, SIXERS 102: The Sixers took Dallas to the wire before dropping their seventh in a row. Three-pointers again proved to be the difference, as Dallas had 30 points to the Sixers' 12 from beyond the arc. The shorthanded Sixers (5-13) out-rebounded the Mavs, 60-37, including 24-11 on the offensive glass. They are 2-8 on the road this season.
