As the Iverson Carousel Goes Round and Round

Question: where will the Answer end up? Most fans (myself included) would like to see AI teamed up with Kevin Garnett in Minnesota. However, as Chad Ford points out today in his Daily Dish podcast, Timberwolves GM Kevin McHale has pretty much adhered to a scorched-earth policy with his team. There's no payroll flexibility to acquire Allen and his huge contract straight up. Minnesota can't entice Philly with future prospects either since the Twolves have already traded the rights to their 2007 and 2009 first-round picks. The debacle that is the McHale era can be summed up by Marc Stein's witty remark on today's show: "A first-round pick and Sam Cassell for Marko Jaric. That wasn't a good deal?"

And now that Charlotte is out of the picture, it appears Boston, Sacramento and possibly Golden State may end up with Iverson's services (practice not included).
