Andre Iguodala to Opt Out of Contract and Become a Free Agent

According to multiple published reports, Andre Iguodala is set to opt out of his current deal with the Denver Nuggets and become one of the most coveted free agents in the NBA this summer. Per Yahoo! Sports and the Denver Post: “Iguodala, 29, promises to be one of the most desired players on the summer market. His agent, Rob Pelinka, informed Denver CEO Josh Kroenke of the plan in a meeting on Thursday in Los Angeles. ‘We are fully aware of Andre’s intentions and he’s well aware of how much we want him back,’ Kroenke said Friday afternoon. ‘Andre us a huge priority for our organization.’ […] This doesn’t necessarily mean he won’t re-sign with Denver, but it’s definitely a sign that he’s considering other teams. […] Iguodala averaged 13.0 points per game, 5.4 rebounds and 5.3 assists last season, his first with Denver. He has until June 25 to exercise the early termination clause on his contract. Team president Josh Kroenke has often spoken highly of Iguodala and will make a push to try to bring him back. There are numerous enticing options of NBA teams with money to spend, including Houston, Dallas and Atlanta. He can sign a four-year deal with any team, but a five-year deal with Denver.”
