Allen Iverson Traded to L.A.?

Jul 13, 2006, 12:35 PM EDT

On the same day when Stephen A. Smith says A.I. isn’t going anywhere, the Sixers do the exact opposite by trading Allen Iverson to the Clippers for Corey Maggette, Shaun Livingston, and a future 1st round pick.

I’ve said in the past that I never wanted the Sixers to trade Allen Iverson, but it is likely a wise decision.  Maggette is 26 and has some good ball left in him.  Livingston is only 20 years old and was the 4th overall pick in 2004.  They got some young talent along with a draft pick.  Couldn’t really hope for much more in my opinion.

My initial reaction: It’s not horrible by any means, but the reality of trading Allen Iverson hurts.  Damn.

What are your first thoughts on the deal?
