NBA Free Agency 2013: Andre Iguodala Seriously Interested in Golden State Warriors


Are you a free agent? Do you cost a lot of money? Good news – the Golden State Warriors are interested in you. And apparently, the interest in mutual.

According to Sam Amick of USA Today, Denver Nuggets free agent swingman Andre Iguodala is seriously interested in signing with the Golden State Warriors:

The notion of clearing space to sign Howard outright isn’t the only plan in play, as free agent small forward Andre Iguodala has serious interest in joining the Warriors even without Howard. He has been seen as a possible cherry on top of their recruiting efforts to get the big man. It’s their version of the Rockets’ plan that is also in play, with free agent forward Josh Smith considered the third star in the sort of scenario that both teams hope could win his affection.

Landing both Howard and Iguodala would be near impossible, though, if the Warriors wanted to part with Klay Thompson and Harrison Barnes, they could potentially pull it off. Still, even then it’s borderline.

The Warriors would need to clear salary to sign Iguodala, who was already offered a contract by the Sacramento Kings this week but had the offered pulled just hours after it was announced.
