AI the Nugget

It's official: Allen Iverson is no longer a 76er. The Answer was traded today to the Denver Nuggets for point guard Andre Miller, forward Joe Smith, and two first round draft picks next year.

The Sixers certainly didn't get equal value. But the getting the two picks was huge, as was Smith's expiring contract. I don't expect the Sixers to be good again at any time in the foreseeable future, but at least they took a step in that direction by getting the picks. Now they just need to get someone other than Billy King to make them.
