If this report is to be believed, The Answer is running out of employment options: “Don’t expect Allen Iverson to wear a Memphis Grizzlies uniform next season. His chances of suiting up for the Los Angeles Clippers don’t look too good, either. Two sources with knowledge of the Grizzlies’ plans said Thursday that any negotiations between the team and Iverson were ‘dead.’ Memphis offered Iverson a one-year, $5 million contract with the stipulation that he would likely need to come off the bench. The Grizzlies, however, have not spoken to Iverson or his management team since early July, and neither side appears to have any interest in restarting talks…One agent who had spoken to Clippers officials in recent days said the team was distancing itself from Iverson after acquiring point guard Sebastian Telfair from the Minnesota Timberwolves and is possibly weighing an offer to free-agent guard Ramon Sessions– though one NBA source cautioned there was still ‘some life’ in talks between the two sides.”
