Clippers talk with Allen Iverson
The Clippers’ future was on display Monday night, in front of NBA Commissioner David Stern, team owner Donald Sterling, General Manager and Coach Mike Dunleavy and veteran Marcus Camby.Other elements of the Clippers’ future were in the works, though not in full view.
Blake Griffin and Allen Iverson. There’s no question mark behind Griffin’s name on a night in which he made his NBA Summer League debut with an impressive showing, scoring a game-high 27 points and grabbing 12 rebounds in the Clippers’ 93-82 victory against the Lakers. The No. 1 overall pick in June’s draft made his first eight shots.
"It’s the first time I played in a game in three months or so, more than that," said Griffin, who gave himself a B-minus. "It was great to get back out there and shake that rust off there a little bit."
As for Iverson? He could end up being part of the Clippers’ future. Talks between the Clippers and the free-agent guard have been characterized as "very serious," according a source close to Iverson who was not authorized to speak publicly about the negotiations.
