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 76ers have contacted the Atlanta Hawks about their desire to trade point guard Jeff Teague or backup Dennis Schroder, a league source said. The source said the Sixers have not made a trade offer for either of the two. Mutliple league sources said they don’t expect the Sixers to make a serious push for one of the point guards before the Feb. 18 trade deadline.
Atlanta reportedly has had trade discussions with Teague’s hometown Indiana Pacers. The Pacers would consider giving Atlanta point guard George Hill, according to reports. The Orlando Magic, for shooting guard Victor Oladipo, could be another destination for Teague, according to reports. A league source believes the Utah Jazz would be solid place for Teague. However, the source believes the Jazz would have to give up Rodney Hood to make the deal work. He doesn’t think Utah is prepared to part ways with the 6-foot-8 shooting guard.
