This just in from ESPN:

Allen Iverson is about to be traded from the Denver Nuggets to the Detroit Pistons for Chauncey Billups, Antonio McDyess and Cheikh Samb.

So much for that Iverson-Carmelo Anthony combination leading Denver to prominence in the West. Detroit, meantime, gives the Boston Celtics something else to think about.
