Now, nobody wants to trade him. I don't really want to trade him. Before he turned into a beast? Sure, I was willing to part with the guy.
From what I've heard from the same source that Nuggs cited earlier, Boston has offered the best package (he didn't name names) but the 76ers are petrified by the idea of trading Iverson to a division rival.
I know, it seems silly to pass up the best deal on the table for that reason, but that appears to be the case.
