EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -Allen Iverson was in the starting lineup for Detroit on Friday night, making his delayed debut for the Pistons against the New Jersey Nets.
Detroit (4-0) played twice since the trade Monday with Denver that sent Chauncey Billups, Antonio McDyess and Cheikh Samb to the Nuggets for the nine-time All-Star.
Iverson was not available for the first game and was not permitted to play in second because Billups had not completed his physical with the Nuggets.
Iverson joined Rip Hamilton in the Detroit backcourt, replacing Rodney Stuckey. Iverson got a rousing cheer from the crowd at the Izod Center when he was introduced with the starters.
