The Golden State Warriors moved Andre Iguodala to the Memphis Grizzlies in a salary dump in late June, but the 35-year-old forward is still viewed as a valuable potential addition for various contending teams.
According to the New York Times’ Marc Stein, five teams are eyeing Iguodala as a potential trade target. It should be no surprise that four of those teams (the Lakers, the Clippers, the Nuggets and the Rockets) are viewed as true contenders in the West.
The fifth team, the Dallas Mavericks, are trying to turn the corner from rebuilding to being in the playoffs. Perhaps a seasoned vet like Iguodala will help get that done.
On a long list of teams interested in Andre Iguodala — Lakers, Rockets, Mavericks, Clippers, etc. — don’t forget Denver. The Nuggets want to bring Iguodala back to the Mile High … as revealed in last week’s @nytimes newsletter. Sign-ups here: https://t.co/KwfHrDo8bs pic.twitter.com/IJONATNmdI

Iguodala was a key member of five NBA Finals appearances and three championship teams in Golden State. He was named MVP of the 2015 NBA Finals.
This past season, Iguodala contributed 5.7 points, 3.7 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game for the Warriors in 68 appearances (13 starts).
Forced to play a bigger role in the playoffs with Kevin Durant out of action, Iggy increased his averages to 9.8 points, 4.3 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game.
He is entering his 16th NBA season.
