Iverson Will Meet With Memphis

Stein: Allen Iverson has Monday meeting scheduled with the Memphis Grizz - ESPN

Allen Iverson has dropped his strongest hint yet that he will soon be joining the Memphis Grizzlies, announcing via his Twitter account Sunday night that he has a face-to-face meeting scheduled Monday with Grizzlies owner Michael Heisley and other club officials. "I want to help them develop a winner," Iverson wrote.

Reached later Sunday by, Heisley confirmed that the meeting will take place Monday in Atlanta, where Iverson has been working out in preparation for next season.

The Griz have no chance to give Iverson the Championship he says he wants, but they appear to be the only ones willing to shell out more than a minimum contract to get him.  Plus he has a pretty good shot at starting.  

Memphis gets a guy that might generate a little interest and ticket sales.  Combining him with Zach Randolph should make for an interesting team.  I'll just leave it at that.
