Iverson Wants To Close Out Career As A Nugget

Allen Iverson has been in Denver just 2 1/2 months. He already knows he’d like to re-sign in 2 1/2 years.

“I want to be here,” the Nuggets guard said Sunday. “I want to finish my career right here.”

Iverson, 31, admits he’s disappointed with Denver’s play since his Dec. 19 acquisition from Philadelphia. But he believes the future remains bright.

Iverson is under contract next season for $19 million and indicated he has no plans to opt out of the $20.8 million he’s due in 2008-09. When the summer of 2009 arrives, Iverson is hopeful of re-signing.

“I would love to do that,” Iverson said. “Hopefully, that’s the way it will work.”
