Iguodala has been a key glue guy from the Warriors.
It would be a blow to see him go, but the prices for his services will be pretty high.
Iguodala plans to seriously consider other teams in July, league sources told The Vertical. Prospective teams would need to show in meetings a vision to move toward contention to pry Iguodala from Golden State, league sources said. In four seasons with the Warriors, Iguodala, who made $11.1 million this past season, has served as a playmaker and primary wing defender and established himself as a high-character leader.
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.
A lot will depend on Kevin Durant, if he is willing to take a little less money, the Warriors can keep their core intact.
The fact that Durant wants to be known for rings more than anything else means it is likely he will do just that, it might not be enough to keep Iggy, but it will give Warriors at least a good shot at it.
