Allen Iverson was traded from Denver to the Detroit Pistons on Monday in a major NBA shakeup that could but both clubs in better position for a championship title.      

       The 33-year-old guard, in the final year of his $21.9 million contract, went to the Pistons while Detroit guard Chauncey Billups, forward Antonio McDyess and Senegalese center Cheikh Samb were sent to the Nuggets.      

       “We are pleased to welcome Allen Iverson to the Pistons organization,” said the team’s president of basketball operations Joe Dumars. “Allen has proven he is one of the elite players in the league and we like what he adds to our roster at the guard position.”      

       Iverson, in his 13th NBA season, has played for Denver since being traded from Philadelphia in December of 2006 alongside Carmelo Anthony. He was named the NBA Most Valuable Player in 2001 when he helped lift Philadelphia to the NBA Finals, where the 76ers lost to the Los Angeles Lakers.
