Denver Nuggets Want To Keep Andre Iguodala

While Denver Nuggets star Andre Iguodala said a few weeks ago that he was “unsure” about his future in Denver, team President Josh Kroenke is very sure of Iggy’s future – it’s going to be in Denver.

Kroenke spoke to Mark Kiszla of the Denver Post recently and said that Iguodala, who has a player option for the upcoming season, was brought to Denver as more than a one year rental.

Per Kiszla:

“I didn’t bring Andre Iguodala to Denver to be here for one year. And that’s what I’ve told him,” Nuggets president Josh Kroenke said Friday.

Iguodala’s contract option would pay him over $16 million dollars for his final year in Denver, though, given Kroenke’s comments one could expect that Iguodala will be offered an extension to stay in the Mile High city if he hasn’t been offered one already.

The former Arizona Wildcat finished last season averaging 13 points, 5.3 rebounds, 5.4 assists and 1.7 steals in 35 minutes a game.
