SPORTZ: The ANSWER Raising Lotsa QUESTIONS, Internets Buzzing With Fan-Tastic Exit Strategies

Celtics — Jeff Clark from Offer Wally, Telfair, and West for Iverson. I know it is a low ball offer, but the salaries work and you have to start somewhere. When they reject that offer, sweeten it with a lottery iverson2.jpgprotected draft pick. They might find that they can’t do better than that deal and just pull the trigger.

Bulls — Stephen A. Smith from Philadelphia Inquirer: Chicago could send the expiring contracts of forwards P.J. Brown and Michael Sweetney, with guard Ben Gordon and a first-round pick to Philly for Iverson. Their brass will meet today but appear unlikely to make such a move.

Kings — Sam Amick at The Sac Bee: If the Kings were, in fact, trying to land Iverson in Sacramento, the most obvious deal would likely involve the swapping of point guards.
