In a shocking reversal, the Sacramento Kings who earlier tonight offered Andre Iguodala a four year, $56 million dollar deal have pulled the contract off the table.
Per USA Today’s Sam Amick:
The Kings have pulled their offer for free agent Andre Iguodala & will no longer pursue him, I’m told. Story to come.
Kings wanted answer that Iguodala wasn’t ready to give, so they pulled out and moved on. They’ll regroup & decide on Tyreke Evans etc.
Yahoo Sports chimed in as well:
Denver’s shown no inclination to match $14M per offer, and Iguodala wasn’t ready to tell the Kings ‘Yes,” sources tell Y! So, Kings bailed.
More or less, it appears either Sacramento was feeling as if they were being played by Iguodala and decided to pull out of the deal or they have another move in the works they’re more confident in. General manager Pete D’alessandro has said the Kings plan to be very aggressive in the trade market, so who knows what caused the reversal.
Certainly a strange occurrence.
