Rumor: Warriors the Front-Runner in AI Sweepstakes

It's raining in the Bay, but the Allen Iverson rumors are heating up this morning!

From Shira Springer of The Boston Globe:

According to a league source, the Celtics remain on the list of teams in contention for Iverson's services, along with Golden State, Minnesota, Indiana, Chicago, Denver, Charlotte, Sacramento, Dallas, and the Clippers. According to another league source, Golden State is the front-runner, offering a package that would include guard Baron Davis and a couple of young players.

From Mitch Lawrence for New York Daily News:

Sixers GM Billy King said he would not comment until a trade is finalized. Although the Bulls don't want Iverson, they still might be involved in a three-way deal, with Golden State ending up with Iverson. After a hot start, the Warriors have been falling apart, losing seven of their last 10.

But Don Nelson is interested in acquiring Iverson to pair with Baron Davis in his backcourt. In the three-way scenario, the Warriors would send power forward Troy Murphy to Chicago as part of a package of players.

Do you think an Allen Iverson-Baron Davis backcourt would work? Would it be an amazing backcourt duo a la Walt Frazier and Earl Monroe or a disaster like Stephon Marbury and Steve Francis?
