    Boston Herald - While the Celtics appear to still be in the hunt for Allen Iverson, it appears that the star guard is not the only player that Danny Ainge is looking at.

    According to a report in the Boston Herald, the Celtics also are said to have varying degrees of interest in New Jersey’s Richard Jefferson, Seattle’s Rashard Lewis, Indiana’s Jermaine O’Neal and Phoenix’ Shawn Marion. But sources weren’t so sure the Nets would part with Jefferson, and O’Neal is said to be on the lower end of the Celts’ wish list.

    According to league sources, the Celtics are willing to let Philadelphia complete its check of the marketplace before making a final offer for Iverson.

    As long as they don't give up Pierce for Iverson, then the Celtics should be fine for the time being.

    Yeah as long as they work together. We all know what happened when Iverson teamed up with Cwbb.

    If Iverson has the right mind set, they could be one of the strongest back courts in the NBA, if only they had kept Ricky Davis. PG: Allen Iverson, SG: Ricky Davis SF: Paul Pierce. That would be amazing. It could work but Iverson would have to understand that he wouldn't be able to average 30 points per, he would have to share it to Pierce more, but we'll see if it happens and if it does, we'll see if it works.

    They also have great players like Delonte West, and Ryan Gomes who is suppose to be something special, if they get Iverson I think they'll compete against the Nets for the Atlantic. Should be interesting on what's going to happen. A lot of real analyst say this trade will never happen.
