What to Do With Iguodala

For the Sixers and their GM, it’s pretty simple: Sign him up to a long term deal.

    Just don’t give him Rashard Lewis money. Something like 10-12 million seems fair, right?

  • Ken

    Yeah, he isn’t a max player, but you want to keep him for sure.

  • peteb80

    This is gonna end bad.

  • Rasheedionics

    By today’s standards he is the franchise player. I’m not saying that I’m agree with it.

    the man of the sixers pay him big bucks

  • celtics=champs

    Iguodala should stay he is a great driver/dunker and with some work on his mid-range game he can be a great asset to the 76ers.

  • Randy Brown

    I think Tayshaun has cost him a good few bucks

    Mark it down. Iggy will be an all star next season.

    mike t..really?

  • Bryant Reeves

    Over who Tillery?

  • Slobodan Chutzpah

    Err, are we talking about the same guy that looked about as scared in the Playoffs as the guys in Blair Witch and got completely shut down? Long-term? Max? Why?

    no more than 12 mill sounds about right.. please not make this into the Shawn Marion situation again, overpaying a super-athletic role player like he’s a Kobe or Iverson type…

  • Kevin Lynn Williams I

    The Sixers will have to let him go look at the playoffs vs Detroit.

    I marked that down, then scribbled over it in Sharpie.

  • http://TheStartingFive.net Michael Tillery

    I have no idea who over, but he’ll get it done. The entire franchise has gained some valuable experience this season. I think it was a blessing in disguise Tayshaun put his game on lock because he’s probably in the gym working on his handle and shooting jumpers right now.

    Anyone got a bet in mind?

    Mizzo: I’ll bet you that Tayshaun gets an All Star bid before Iggy does. What kind of bet you want to make?

    Tay before Ig? I’ll take that bet TAD.

  • jay

    Tayshaun is sooo underrated its ridiculoso. & i agree with tenorca 10-12 mil for Iggy sounds fair.

  • tealish

    Both aren’t consistent enough to be All-Stars. They have big games, and then they can disappear for a week. 10mil/yr sounds about right.

  • http://TheStartingFive.net Michael Tillery

    You write a week of Iggy posts on TSF and I’ll do the same on your blog and whatever you choose.

  • PoppaGrizzly

    The Pistons proved that Iggy is a good second option, not a reliable primary threat. Hope his ego doesn’t get in the way. I’m sure there will be takers, just hope he stays in Philly. Prince once again did his thing. Top 3 underrated players in the game.

    Iggy will be an allstar…..if 3 top level SF’s are injured come ASW….say Lebron, RJ and….Turkoglu?

  • stillcantbelieveitsnotbutter

    Def not a max player but if the 76ers don’t sign him its gonna haunt them for a while. I get the feeling that he’s gonna be choking in the playoffs just about every year though…and I’m sure now that I’ve said this I’m gonna eat my words next year.

  • http://TheStartingFive.net Michael Tillery

    Dude hes butter…trust me on that.

  • http://www.nba.com hursty

    12 million is right but the whole thing wont end well for either party if he does a Boozer or tests free agency.

  • Silky Slim

    If the Sixers can’t resign Andre Miller, they’re going right back to the gutter in the Eastern conference. Resigning Iguodala becomes irrelevant without Miller.

  • daniel

    doesnt everyone saying tayshaun prince is underrated make him overrated?

  • http://shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    Mizzo: Sorry to get back to you so late, but you’re on. Now I just need to find out if Iggy has a week worth of stuff to write about.

  • http://www.justnotinteresting.com LIJ

    Trade Iggy to the Grizz for Kwame Brown and a 2nd round draft pick…

  • http://www.workforstudents.com Adrian Zapata

    i would have more confidence in Sam Dalenbert (sp) being an all-star before Iggy

  • http://slamonline JWade

    He need to get more money for carrying the team on his back
