If Phila took a big salary back for Iverson, they'd still be in the same boat. They need cap room, and they get plenty the next 2 seasons.
Billy King's goal should have been to acquire cheap young talent that has potential but will still lose games, expiring contracts and draft picks.
Why should he have done that? Because if Philly continues at the pace they are playing, they will end up with the best chance to land the next big thing, Greg Oden. They were already going to suck this year, so why not suck big time with youth and the possibility of landing a franchise player?
Instead, King took back a good player and two late round picks. What a freaking idiot. I mean, a freaking idiot.
