The Globe and the Herald both have updates on the Iverson trade saga. Shira has this to say:
The buzz around the league was that the Clippers were moving into the lead in the Iverson Derby. The Celtics were on the outside, in part, because the word was the price would be too high.
She also says that one of the benefits of all the trade talk is that it has motivated Jefferson who has heard his name in trade rumors and he doesn't want them to send him anywhere.
The Globe has this to say about the race for Iverson:
The Celtics appeared to be on the outside looking in as the Sixers continued to peruse the numerous offers they have received for their shelved star, Allen Iverson. Two western conference teams - Denver with an offer said to include Nene, Eduardo Najera and J.R. Smith, and the Clippers with a package that may or may not include the much coveted Shaun Livingston - reportedly had jumped to the front of what was characterized as a very frustrated pack.
They also have some news on the injury front. Delonte sat out practices as he bruised his tailbone in a fall in the Knicks game but he plans to play tomorrow night. Wally practiced today and barring any complications, he plans to play tomorrow night.
