Allen Iverson eyes Sixers front-office job

Appearing in the broadcast booth with Marc Zumoff and Malik Allen on Wednesday night, Iverson revealed that he would like to join the Sixers front office. “I have a relationship with these fans like no other. And with this city and with this organization,” Iverson explained of his ties to Philadelphia. “Anything I can do to help, I’m here.” The conversation then turned to Iverson’s post-retirement plans, and if he would like to remain around the game, potentially in a front office capacity. “I would like to be even in that war room,” Iverson replied. “Even if they don’t go with my decision or whatever, just to have an opinion and putting out what I think and trusting the organization to do what’s right.”

The National Basketball Players Association is proposing to use millions of dollars of its share of the NBA’s impending television revenue windfall to cover health-care insurance costs for its former players, league sources told Yahoo Sports. The plan is estimated to cost between $10 million-$15 million a year and a vote on passage of the union’s initiative is set for the NBPA’s July 20 membership meeting in Las Vegas. The union’s 30 team player representatives are expected to pass the plan with ease and start the process of covering the retired players quickly, league sources said. The NBPA has been researching the names and addresses of the approximate 1,500 ex-living players and hoping to offer three separate health-care options to them, sources said.

For what it’s worth, I’ve heard that LeBron James likes Johnson’s game. If the Cavs don’t bring back Smith, they need someone like Smith or Johnson. When Smith walked away from his $6.4 million player option for 2015-16, he pretty much signed his exit papers from the Cavs. The team doesn’t think it’s wise to commit long-term to the volatile Smith, and they are right about that. Smith wants a multi-year deal.
