NBA No-Trade Clause: Only Kobe

Feb 13, 2006, 12:01 AM EDT

Marc Stein answers the question many, myself included, have been wondering.

Iverson doesn’t possess the ultimate hammer. NBA front-office
sources confirmed Tuesday that his contract does not contain a no-trade
clause.

In fact, as far as I know, the Lakers’ Kobe Bryant is the only NBA player who has one.

So if Iverson did in fact squash a deal to Charlotte, it’s likely he used his bad reputation and scare tactics to keep the Bobcats away.

Sixers fans can’t sleep at night knowing Billy King and Ed Snider could decide the foreseeable future of basketball in Philadelphia.  Does anyone have faith in Sixers management making a decent decision?

At least four Western Conference teams remain interested in Iverson,
according to several executives in the league: Denver, which expressed
interest in acquiring Iverson last season; Memphis; Minnesota; and the Los Angeles Clippers. In the East, Boston and Indiana are interested.
