Best Answer

They could not afford his salary. A player of that much skill and talent needed a higher salary, and the 76ers did not have that kind of money, so the Denver Nuggets bought him out..........Allen Iverson was on the last year of his Nuggets contract, and Denver traded him to the Detroit Pistons for Chauncey Billups, Antonio McDyess, and Cheikh Samb; Antonio McDyess chose not to play with the Nuggets, so they let him go, and the Pistons got him back.
