Sixers meet with Iverson

Posted Nov 30 2009 4:25PM

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Allen Iverson is meeting with the Philadelphia 76ers about a possible return to the team.

A person with knowledge of the talks says Iverson and team president Ed Stefanski are meeting Monday in Dallas. The person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the talks had not been made public, says they are discussing the possibility of Iverson returning to his former team.

Iverson is among the free-agent candidates the Sixers are considering to replace injured point guard Lou Williams, who's expected to miss eight weeks after jaw surgery.

Iverson announced his retirement last week after an ill-fated stint with the Memphis Grizzlies. The 10-time All-Star was NBA MVP in 2001 when he led the Sixers to the NBA Finals.
