Andre Iguodala on Trade Talk: ‘I Don’t Have Control Over it’

Iggy is doing his best to ignore seeing his name all over the trade rumor mill, impossible as that may seem. The Daily News reports: “I really haven’t been paying too much attention to it,’ [Iguodala] said. ‘I don’t have control over it . My biggest thing this summer is I am trying to relax, and keep my mind off basketball … My thing is, things happen, let it happen and then react to it. I think it’s too early for me to start worrying about it.’ Sixers president Rod Thorn has been a busy man since the end of the season, saying he has talked to ‘over 20 teams” about ‘a variety of things.’ The latest rumor that seems to be heating up has the Sixers dealing forward Andre Iguodala to Golden State for scoring guard Monta Ellis. ‘We talk to teams daily about a variety of things,’ said Thorn this morning. ‘I’ve talked to 20 teams, over 20 teams, in the past couple of weeks. We have nothing to say right now about anything. There is nothing imminent.’ Both Iguodala and Ellis have three years remaining on their current contracts, with Iguodala scheduled to make a little more than $42 million while Ellis will get about $33 million. Ellis could provide the scorer the Sixers are searching for, as he averaged 24.1 points last season and 25.5 the season before.”

    iggy would be a great fit with the warriors, steph curry, and new coach mark jackson. ellis would be a great fit for the sixers, who need a real scorer. this trade makes too much sense to ever actually happen in real life…

    Andre Iguodala on Jump Shot: ‘I Don’t Have Control Over It’

  • rich

    i was about to say ^^^^ hes not thinking about ball fix ur damn jumper

  • add

    we dont need monta, he can score (but we already have lou), and he plays no d, not worth getting rid of a top perimiter defender for a guy who doesnt know the definition of defense, he should ask charles about it

  • ThaWindy

    I thought he was gonna say Im just working on my game. Like Boozer should be doing. Ellis to Chicago.

    Ellis to Chicago?
    I’m not down with that.
    I mean, he’s an outstanding scorer, but he’d basically be like getting Ben Gordon all over again, only he’s a more potent scorer.
    And co-sign add, his defense sucks.

    what do y’all feel about Iggy to Chicago?

  • http://www.bulls.com Rigo Gonzalez

    @Oh Nose – I’d rather have Deng than Iggy. But if a Boozer for Iggy deal could somehow be done, I’d be all for it. But that’s highly unlikely.

    hold up monta used to play D when it was baron davis’ team. it’s not like he CAN’T do it at all.

    The G.S./Phi trade makes sense.. Surprised Cleveland isn’t trying to land Iggy.

  • rich

    too bad we cant have both guys on the same team that would be dope
