With rumors and speculation swirling, Rod Thorn sort of denies that the Sixers are looking to move Iggy (OK, not really). The Philly Burbs has the quotes: “Team president Rod Thorn denied a published report, citing unnamed sources, claiming the Sixers are ‘attempting to trade’ swingman Andre Iguodala. In an email response Sunday, Thorn said the Sixers are ‘trying to ascertain the value of all of our players. Big difference.’ The Morning Journal (Ohio) claimed the Sixers are looking to move the 26-year-old Iguodala, who has four years and $56 million left on his contract (counting this season). A source in the report said the Sixers and Cavaliers haven’t had any ‘active dialogue,’ but to ‘keep an eye on’ Cleveland because it lacks a No. 1 player since LeBron James left for Miami. The Cavs own a $14.5 million trade exception they acquired for James that could appeal to some teams.”
