Mitch Lawrence of the New York Daily News cites a deal that's similar to the one we were tipped on this morning:
One of the deals King was strongly considering is with Golden State, for point guard Baron Davis, center Andris Biedrins and a third unidentified player. In addition to Iverson, the Warriors would get backup center Steven Hunter. While a source close to one of the players involved called the deal "done," the Sixers remain quiet about where they will be sending Iverson.
Earlier in trade talks, Golden State had been trying to move veterans with long-term deals, including Troy Murphy, Mike Dunleavy and Adonal Foyle. But the Sixers asked for Biedrins - a third-year player who turns 21 in April - Monta Ellis or Mickael Pietrus. If the deal with Golden State goes through, it will allow Iverson to play in Don Nelson's freewheeling offensive system. The Warriors feel that Iverson would give them a great chance to get into the playoffs for the first time since 1994.
It's getting interesting- I mean really, REALLY interesting. The Warriors seem to be incredibly active in pursuing Allen Iverson. I have to hand it to them. Chris Mullin, Rod Higgins, and Don Nelson must see something they really like. Even if the Iverson dealings don't materialize I give them major props having a vision.
