Allen Iverson’s NBA career appears poised for one final bizarre twist. The Sixers are set to part ways with Iverson for a second time, likely sending him into retirement.
Citing a source close to the situation, the Philadelphia Enquirer’s Kate Hagan reported late Monday that the Sixers are preparing to announce Iverson’s departure within the next couple days.
Iverson has been away from the Sixers since Feb. 20 and also missed two weeks prior to the All-Star game while tending to his ailing daughter.
With the Sixers going nowhere fast, Iverson was pursued primarily in an effort to boost sinking attendance. His role figures to diminish if he does decide to return to the team unexpectedly.
