ESPN: Clippers interested in AI

Quote:
The makeover of the Los Angeles Clippers may include a former scoring champion.

The team is in "very serious" talks with Allen Iverson on a contract, the Los Angeles Times reported on Monday. ESPN.com's Marc Stein reported on Sunday that the Memphis Grizzlies have been pursuing Iverson, but owner Michael Heisley thought the Miami Heat had the inside track. The Charlotte Bobcats were also reported to have interest.

Iverson is a 10-time All-Star who has led the league in scoring four times. He has averaged 23.5 points and 5.4 assists per game over his 13 seasons but posted a career low 17.4 ppg average last season.

A bad back limited Iverson to 57 games last season between the Denver Nuggets and Detroit Pistons. He was also embroiled in controversy when he bristled at coming off the bench for Detroit.

The Clippers may be prepared to offer their full mid-level exception of $5.8 million on a one-year contract. The Grizzlies are reportedly willing to offer something in the same neighborhood, but the Heat are thought to be interested in paying him less than half of that figure.

The Clippers drafted Blake Griffin with the first overall pick in this year's NBA draft. They also traded forward Zach Randolph to the Grizzlies for swingman Quentin Richardson.
Just what the Clippers of all teams, need?

They have a great young guard in Eric Gordon..why would they even entertain this?..more importantly, how does Dunleavy still have this gig?

And people wonder how a team can go 30+yrs and only have 2 winning seasons? This is a classic Clippers move. One step forward with Blake Griffin....two steps backwards with AI.

Eric Gordon needs and deserves starting minutes. Don't bring AI in to screw stuff up.

On PTI they said that the clippers are already interested in getting this man just so they can feel up seats.
