Allen Iverson Has Told People He’ll Sign with New York Knicks
Allen Iverson has told associates he is prepared to come to New York and resuscitate not only his Hall of Fame career but also a desperate franchise trying to pacify its frustrated fans as it bridges the gap to 2010.
Though no decision has been officially made by the Knicks, indications are that the Iverson Era – however brief it may be – could begin as early as Thursday night after the 34-year-old former MVP clears waivers at 6 p.m. It may all hinge on how both sides come out of a conversation that is expected to take place Thursday.
Walsh said if the Knicks, who like Newsday are owned by Cablevision, do offer Iverson a contract – likely the $1.4 million veteran’s minimum – it will be done immediately after he clears waivers.
