Allen Iverson to Wear #1 Jersey for Rest of Season

Allen Iverson will wear No. 1 for the Pistons.

The All-Star guard, acquired in a trade with Denver on Monday, had wanted to wear his usual No. 3, which is currently being worn by second-year guard Rodney Stuckey.

Stuckey indicated he would be willing to give up the number, but the NBA ruled Tuesday that a change in numbers can’t take place until after the season.
