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.”

Atlanta Hawks coach and former Spurs assistant Mike Budenholzer met with reporters before tonight’s game with his former team. Here’s the transcript from that session. Q: Even with Kawhi Leonard’s improvement and LaMarcus Aldridge’s arrival, how important does Parker remain for Spurs? Mike Budenholzer: “I think he’s very important. The way they play, they’re all very important. They work well together. But Tony has been the guy that kind of starts the engine when he’s aggressive and in attack mode. He can really set everybody up, including himself. He has been and always will be critical to them.”
Q: What has impressed you watching Leonard’s growth from afar? A: “Everything. Just the growth from his first two or three years to now. Defensively, he’s always been really special. To see how he has taken a lot of responsibility offensively, making tough shots and putting the ball in his hands and creating, he’s just a physical force at the small forward position. He’s really grown. It’s impressive.”
