Allen Iverson may have found the answer he's been looking for, and it's better than he could have expected.

Hours after the Memphis Grizzlies terminated Iverson's contract, Orlando Magic point guard Jameer Nelson suffered a torn meniscus in his left knee. Nelson is not expected to return for at least a month.

The backup point guards for the Magic are not exactly spring chickens, nor are they truly solid options.

Jason Williams takes over as the starter on Wednesday night, his 34th birthday. Williams retired after the 2007-08 season and has just returned to action this season in Orlando.

Williams' first task is Oklahoma City, who features Russell Westbrook at the point. Westbrook lit up Nelson for 17 points and 10 assists. Jason Williams will have his hands full with the speedy sophomore.

Anthony Johnson, age 35, is a journeyman and perennial bench player. He is not likely to be especially effective spelling Williams.

Allen Iverson may be 34 years old, but he is also a surefire Hall of Famer, something the others can't boast. Iverson could step into the starting role and perform well in the Magic offense.
