Allen Iverson: Everybody Knows I Want To Help 76ers

Former 76ers great Allen Iverson said he would love to land a job with an NBA front office, and his preference would be to land in Philadelphia.Allen Iverson

“I’m a Sixer for life. I got Sixer blood pumping through me,” he told Bleacher Report’s Taylor Rooks. “Everybody knows that I want to help that organization. I’ve been retired, what, 11 years? I don’t know how I’m not a part of that staff, some kind of way.”

Iverson led the 76ers to the Finals in 2001. He added that he would settle for a consulting role and that money didn’t matter.

“I would be the happiest in the world. And the money thing? Ain’t got nothing to do with it,” Iverson said. “It’s just me being me, and me being a Sixer and wanting to help.”

The Sixers could probably use some consulting, given the current drama surrounding All-Star guard/forward Ben Simmons, who is seeking a trade.

Philadelphia’s front office is currently led by director of basketball operations Daryl Morey and general manager Elton Brand.
