Iverson For Billups ?
Posted by Mike on November 3, 2008
ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith is reporting at this hour that a Allen Iverson/Chauncey Billups trade could happen this afternoon. The first person to report rumors of this deal was Boston Globe’s Marc Spears, who just happened to be a beat writer in Denver two years ago. Also, Antonio Mcdyess is part of the deal.
UPDATE: From ESPN:
The Nuggets and Pistons have agreed in principle on a trade that would send Allen Iverson to Detroit and Chauncey Billups, Antonio McDyess and Cheikh Samb to Denver, sources have told ESPN.
The deal has not been finalized.
This would be the second time Iverson has been traded in two years. He was dealt by Philadelphia to Denver in December 2006, kicked out of Philly over irreconcilable differences as part of a package that brought Andre Miller to the 76ers
