The Warriors’ key role player is reportedly going to seriously consider leaving.
The Warriors’ pursuit of back-to-back NBA titles (and three in four seasons) might have to be done without the 2015 NBA Finals MVP.
Golden State’s do-it-all forward Andre Iguodala is set to be a free agent this summer and he’s reportedly going to seriously consider leaving the franchise for another team.
Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, Shaun Livingston and Iguodala are all set to hit the open market this summer. Curry and Durant are locks to re-sign and Livingston should, too. Iguodala, though, is reportedly going to be the toughest one to keep, according to The Vertical’s Shams Charania.
Iguodala, 33, reportedly will have interest from several teams.
Many teams are expected to pursue discussions with Iguodala, including the Warriors, Utah Jazz, Los Angeles Clippers, Chicago Bulls, Minnesota Timberwolves and Atlanta Hawks, league sources said. Among teams around the league, there’s a belief that the value this summer for a two-way wing such as Iguodala could reach $20 million annually.
Iguodala averaged 7.6 points and 3.4 rebounds a game for the Warriors this past season. He averaged 8.6 points, 3.4 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game during The Finals.
