Iverson's Now a Nugget


Philadelphia, PA - Allen Iverson was traded by the 76ers to the Denver Nuggets, a person in the NBA with knowledge of the deal told the Associated Press.

The official, speaking on condition of anonymity because the deal was not announced, did not know the terms of the deal.

ESPN.com said the trade would send Andre Miller, Joe Smith and two 2007 first-round picks to the 76ers for Iverson and perhaps another minimum-salaried player or two.

Iverson, inactive for six straight games, was sent home with pay after he asked to be traded nearly two weeks ago. He has nearly $60 million left on his contract.

Only Memphis (5-19) has a worse record than the 76ers (5-18), who are winless since Nov. 24.
