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.”

Josh Meyer: Wolves have any interest in dealing Shabazz for Sullinger or Olynyk? Doubt Boston would pull the trigger. – Darren Wolfson: I just hear that Boston is kicking the tires on ‘Bazz. I haven’t heard names.
Darren Wolfson: Newton’s first real test: whether to move Shabazz. Hear tonight Blazers, Suns, & Celtics kicking the tires. LAC still too, & more. #twolves – Kyle Ferreira: I hope Portland can get him. What do you think they would have to give up? – Darren Wolfson: Allen Crabbe, and Portland isn’t doing that. Most trades talked about NEVER happen. I see Shabazz staying.
Darren Wolfson: Here’s a quote from #Twolves boss Milt Newton on the Rubio trade talk: “To this point, no one has called us about Ricky. Whatever is out there is not accurate. Will someone call? I don’t know, but if that happens, it behooves the organization that I listen.” – Scott Korzenowski: Didn’t exactly deny that Wolves are shopping him, though. Just said no one has called. – Darren Wolfson: I’ve texted some non-Wolves FO folks and nobody has told me they’re shopping him. But are the Wolves married to him? I’d say no.
D Tilsner: Have you heard anything about a Horford trade? Him & KAT make too much sense together. Obviously wed have to max out Horford. – Darren Wolfson: LOVE him. Told the Wolves haven’t tried yet. Hard to trade for w/o knowing if he’d sign here long-term.
Jeff Lehti: Speaking of Adreian Payne, I read last week LAC might have a little interest? Obviously wouldn’t recoup the #1 used to get him… – Darren Wolfson: There’s a few teams that have interest. Not sure I see a trade before next Thurs.
