So… Who Will Take Allen Iverson Now?

Iverson has left the building! (Get it, Elvis... Memphis...)

The Allen Iverson Experiment with the Memphis Grizzlies is over, and while the 10-time All-Star and former league MVP figures out his next move, after the jump we’ll see where the future Hall of Famer should go.

It was called a mutual agreement, but Iverson was not placed on waivers by the 6pm EST deadline on Monday. So, essentially, Iverson is expected to be waived on Tuesday. If he clears waivers, then he will become an unrestricted free agent on Wednesday night.

The Grizzlies have already made moves to replace the former NBA scoring champ by signing point guard Jamaal Tinsley on Saturday.

With few teams interested in the 34-year-old guard, where will Allen Iverson end up if he doesn’t decide to retire.

The Los Angeles Clippers:

Even with Blake Griffin out, the Clippers have some nice firepower coming off the bench and while Ricky Davis continues to struggle in the 2-3 position, Iverson could come to add some points to the board as a scorer.

The Atlanta Hawks:

The Hawks are notoriously big man heavy on the roster. Most of them are forward/centers and while guards Mike Bibby and Joe Johnson pack a really good one-two punch, Iverson could come off the bench to help relieve the duo for when they get tired and still keep the explosive Hawks running up and down the court.

The New York Knicks:

Donnie Walsh has already expressed interest in Iverson and he could later be a bargaining chip in hopes of capitalizing on the 2010 free agency OR he’d be a tantalizing offer to lure other players in understanding how the Knicks are looking to rebuild.

The Knicks are looking to win the lottery, so to speak, as Chris Bosh, LeBron James, Dwayne Wade are just a few of the big names that are up for free agency. With Iverson on board as a floor general, I’d be sure that all parties would be happy if they could get a fellow superstar to play alongside the former 76er.

What do you think -  Is Iverson still a 30-a-night top scorer? Or is he bench-warmer material? Share your thoughts on where the point guard du jour should go to in the comments section below.
