McHale's Statement On Iverson

From the Pioneer Press:
Now that all-star Allen Iverson is headed to Denver, Timberwolves vice president of basketball operations Kevin McHale acknowledged Tuesday that his club was in the running for the all-star but wasn't able to make a trade...

"Obviously, we weren't able to make a deal with Philadelphia for Allen Iverson," McHale said in a statement issued by the Wolves. "We looked at many different scenarios and explored many different options, but at the end of the day it was Philadelphia's decision to make. We will not be discussing this in any further detail as it's not in the best interest of our team. As always, we will continue to look for ways to improve our basketball team."
