Why is Allen Iverson on Free Agents?

They guy isn't retired? He has filed any papers for retirement? He has been looking for an NBA Team to sign him and I believe they found a cyberface of him on XBOX. He is the headless guy but the announcers call him "Iverson".

Oh that sucks! It sucks that he is not on the disc and that nobody in the NBA will give him another chance.

The real answer, from a business standpoint, is that he's been out of the league for over a year, and therefore isn't an active member of the NBAPA. 2K has a contract with the NBAPA to use al of its players' likenesses in the game. To get a guy like Iverson in the game they'd have to contract him independently, which they've decided isn't worth the extra money. I'm sure that, if 2K could, they'd have every player that's ever been in the game but not officially retired in the free agents list, but they can't do it. This is the same reason why Barry Bonds wasnt in any baseball games for years, and neither were the 1994 "scab" players like Kevin Millar because none of them were MLBPA members. I have fond memories of manually renaming all those guys back in the day.

^ I can't buy that as an answer. 2K had Lynn Greer on their disk for years after he played his last NBA game. I am sure he wasn't still part of the NBAPA. Foul. Cover boy for 5 years, why take him off of the disk? Just hide him. But why take him off of the disk? Same with Gerald Green. Same with just about anyone. Do they pictures/cyberfaces take up that much space on the disk? I am curious.
