Will the Sixers sign a big name player this free agent season? No, the Spencer Hawes signing does not count. It does count in the salary expense and his two-year deal takes us further away from that marquee player or even a mid-level starter. What is left for the Sixers is finding some important role players. Players who can provide the Sixers with much-needed points and energy.

We have already discussed trying to obtain Andre Miller, a player who would give the Sixers great minutes and leadership. The only thing he would not bring is needed points to replace Lou Williams if the Sixers do not resign him. So what options are out there for the Sixers?

Allen Iverson could just be that guy! Iverson who was out of the league last season certainly sounded like he wanted back in the NBA when he was at the Sixer/Celtic game didn’t he? Iverson in a limited role off the bench could provide some scoring and plenty of excitement for us Sixer fans. He would also come cheap at around a $1.5 million veteran minimum. The downside is Allen Iverson and if he is the same person.

Iverson could be the big name free agent signing as a role player who previously was the face of the Sixers’ franchise. Seeing him in a Sixers’ uniform coming off the bench and dropping ten points a night would help the Sixers win and also put some fans in the seats.
