Iguodalas career started when the Philadelphia 76ers drafted him ninth overall out of Arizona in 2004. From then until 2011-12, his lone All-Star season, he averaged 15.3 points, 5.8 rebounds, 4.9 assists and 1.7 steals across 615 games—all starts. He spent the 2012-13 campaign with the Denver Nuggets before being traded to Golden State. While with the Warriors, Iguodala excelled as a sixth man and won three NBA titles while averaging 7.3 points, 3.9 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 1.1 steals across 413 games (84 starts).
They think heâ€™s tradable. Why give something up for free, if you can get assets back.
they dont face much incentive to do so. they have until the trade deadline to test the waters and having a vet presence like dre to fill out a roster is great for any team.
Why would they engage?
Because they think they can get an asset back, but itâ€™s hard to imagine any good teams trading a valuable asset to pay a 35 year old Iggy 17M. He was absolutely great in the playoffs defensively and would be a great addition to the Clips, Lakers or Rock
Why would they pay him 18m to go play for the lakers and get nothing in return? Thereâ€™s no reason for them to buy him out.
Because they would have to pay $17m. Why would they do that?
Thatâ€™s not what a buyout is... but he probably wouldnâ€™t give up enough for it to be worth considering at this point
Iggy is great player. Worth the money if he is motivated.
Presumably because Iguodala isnt offering enough money. If he offered to give up $16mil+ presumably the Grizzlies would be interested.
