NBA Rumors: Cleveland Cavaliers to try and Sign Andre Iguodala?

Outside of Chris Paul and Dwight Howard, few players (if any) will draw more interest in the free agent market this Summer than Andre Iguodala.

The former long time Philadelphia 76er opted out of his contract with the Denver Nuggets earlier this week in hopes of securing a more lucrative, long term deal. He couldn’t have picked a much better time given the amount of teams gearing up to make a run at the previously mentioned due of Paul and Howard.

There will be teams left with gobs of cash once Paul and Howard are off the board and that’s where the former Arizona Wildcat is hoping to cash in.

One such team who appears destined to make a run at the swingman are the Cleveland Cavaliers, this according to Bob Finnan:

The Cavs will likely make a run at him in free agency but might not be willing to ante up for his services.

They have the necessary salary-cap space to sign him, but is he worth anywhere near the $15.9 million he opted out of for next year?

While Finnan has a point in regard to Iguodala’s overall worth, the 2012 NBA All-Star will be taking a pay reduction wherever he goes – at least in the immediate future.
