Sounds like we can forget about Allen Iverson.

Allen Iverson became a free agent at 6 p.m. last night. It didn't take long thereafter for the Knicks to sour on the proposition of signing him. From Howard Beck of the NY Times:

In an abrupt reversal, Knicks officials decided late Thursday not to offer Iverson a contract, putting an end to their brief flirtation, according to a person close to the deliberations.

Although team officials were highly intrigued by Iverson, a four-time scoring champion, they finally decided that he posed too great a risk because of his long history of problems on and off the court.

It was cute while it lasted. Now let's put that all behind us and get back to losing some games!
