Report: Lakers At One Point Considered Allen Iverson

The Los Angeles Lakers, who have been looking for another player who can score from the perimeter, considered signing former All-Star Allen Iverson, according to ESPN.

Sources told ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith that the team was considering signing Iverson  with the caveat that he would need to spend time in the NBA Developmental League before joining the NBA squad. The team, however, decided that Iverson was not a traditional point guard and therefor may not fit their system effectively.

It was reported yesterday that the Lakers attended a private workout with former All-Star Gilbert Arenas. The former Washington Wizards point guard could potentially be a stronger fit and is reported to be in great shape after undergoing the same knee procedure that Kobe Bryant had oversees this offseason.

Iverson’s last stint in the NBA was in 2010 with the Memphis Grizzlies and the Philadelphia 76ers, where he averaged 13.8 points, 4.0 assists, and 2.8 rebounds per game.

During his career he averaged 26.7 points, 6.2 assists, and 3.7 rebounds per game. He was an 11-time All-Star, two-time All-Star MVP, and in 2001 he was the NBA’s Most Valuable Player.
