Celtics Have Considered Signing Iverson

We have had internal discussions about (Iverson),” Ainge said yesterday, “but a decision like this has to be unanimous, and it wasn’t.”

Among the questions surrounding Iverson are cost (not a problem after he was willing to go to the Grizzlies for $3.1 million), how much he could help a club and whether, in the case of a good team like the Celts, he’d be willing to come off the bench.

“Those are all things to be considered, but we never got to the point where we discussed them with Allen or his agent,” Ainge said.

If things changed around the Celts, via injury or otherwise, and Iverson still is available, the subject would be back on the table.

“He’s someone I would definitely consider if I felt we had a need,” Ainge said. “But I like the team we have now, and we don’t have that need.”

Here comes the reality check for AI I guess. He should have just kept his mouth shut in Detroit. He only had to play half a season there no matter if he didn't like it...

hmmm very interesting, but i wonder if they do sign him will he be a starter or off the bench. We all know how he reacted coming off the bench with memphis. I'm sure Rondo would have a fit if he was coming off the bench.

i honestly dont see any team picking him up right now.
NY was the only team i felt could use him, and they passed.

AI's season is finished.

that speaks volumes when the celtics (who are a year removed from signing Marbury for added fire-power), stay away from AI.

this guy is in a bad position... good teams obviously are staying away, and bad ones dont want him either. he's getting black listed.
