Magic, Hornets want ex-Piston Allen Iverson?
Former Piston Allen Iverson could find work soon. The four-time NBA scoring champ has drawn interest from the Magic and the Hornets, according to a tweet by Ohio-based NBA.com writer Sam Amico, who cited "those who claim to be in the know." The Pistons acquired Iverson in November 2008.

If Iverson goes to the Magic i think they have a great chance at a championship if the use him correctly, first he has to start the game at the two guard and Vince has to play to Small forward that would leave Nelson at the point Lewis at the four and Howard in the middle, Allen would give the a solid 30pt scorer at the two spot something that Carter could never give the last year, they have to let Allen Iverson lose and let him to him that is to only way he will be effective, let him and Howard get their offense and everyone else fall in line, he goes to The Magic they are my pick to win it all

If Iverson becomes a Magician, then the Magic MUST develop an offensive system employing a true power forward like Brandon Bass. Iverson's ability to break down a defense does not see kickouts to outside shooters.
I think the Iverson addition can diversify their offense, which is a good thing. There are those who would see AI coming to Orlando as a bad thing. Frankly, I would see it as a plus. At this time in his career, Iverson knows what he is not. He is not a player who can put an entire team on his back, but he is instead someone who can energize a team as a reserve, or as the catalyst of an offensive switch.
With AI you would have to defend two types of attack with the Magic.
As a Magic fan, I hope it happens!
