Memphis Awaiting Answer from AI

New, comments

Allow me to read between the lines for you on the story coming out of Memphis today that Allen Iverson might give the Grizzlies a Yes/No decision sometime today: He's waiting on what another team or teams might offer in response. I can't imagine anyone would give Iverson more than a one year deal for the mid-level, and the Bobcats are in no position to offer that much to him.

Interestingly, at the bottom of that Commercial Appeal piece, there's a who's who of backup point guards listed as other free agent options besides AI, especially since Ramon Sessions has finally gotten his own deal (16mil/4). Not mentioned in that list--but, oddly, given a blog post devoted to him--is the first D-League player ever drafted in the NBA Draft: Mike Taylor. Maybe I'm biased because he's a 2K9 staple, but dude was far from terrible for the Clippers last year, and can jump out of the building. If he'd take less than $1 million to be a backup, then it boggles the mind that he wouldn't be able to find any work this year.
