76ers trade Iverson to DenverPosted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA - The Philadelphia 76ers have finally traded their star player. Allen Iverson, who has been inactive for six straight games while the Sixers pursued a deal, is headed to the Denver Nuggets -- that's according to what a person in the NBA with knowledge of the deal tells the Associated Press.
The official, who was speaking on condition of anonymity because the deal was not announced, did not know the terms of the deal. ESPN.com reports the trade will send Andre Miller, Joe Smith and two 2007 first-round picks to the 76ers for Iverson and perhaps another minimum-salaried player or two.
Iverson was sent home with pay after he asked to be traded nearly two weeks ago. He has nearly $60 million left on his contract.
The 76ers haven't won a game since November 24th, and their 5-and-18 record is second-worst in the NBA behind 5-and-19 Memphis.
