"Sixers" discussing letting "Allen Iverson" rejoin the team for 1 year in a non commital contract, but is the offer enough to make "Iverson" consider coming out of retirement. 

"Iverson" became a free agent earlier this month when he and the Memphis Grizzlies agreed to a mutual parting after the 34-year-old played in just three games. 

The Sixers entered Friday's play ranked second-to-last in the league in average per-game attendance (11,820 fans) and last in terms of filling their arena to capacity. The Wachovia Center has been filled to only 58.2 percent of capacity so far this season; Memphis' per-game average of 11,387 fans represents 62.8 percent of capacity at FedEx Forum.

After "Iverson" averaged 12.3 points and 3.7 assists in 22.3 minutes per games in his short Memphis stay -- having missed most of training camp with a partially torn hamstring -- it's widely believed that it won't be hard for any interested team to convince Iverson to rescind his retirement statement.

The "Sixers" are almost $6.6 million under this season's luxury-tax threshold, so they can afford to sign Iverson for the rest of the season without any serious financial consequences.
