Iguodala will sign a one-year, minimum contract with the Warriors, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Iguodala spent the past two seasons with the Heat, where he averaged 4.4 points, 3.6 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 20.9 minutes. The days of Iguodala being fantasy-relevant are long gone, but he still provides some real-life value as a high-IQ player and savvy defender. He'll be returning to the Warriors, where he was part of the team's impressive title runs. The 37-year-old will likely continue seeing minutes in the low-20s, and possibly even the high-teens. Golden State is suddenly deep on the wing, with Iguodala needing to compete for minutes with rookies Jonathan Kuminga and Moses Moody, as well as Otto Porter, Nemanja Bjelica and Juan Toscano-Anderson.
Miami informed Iguodala on Sunday that it will decline his $15 million team option for 2021-22, making him an unrestricted free agent, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Iguodala held a consistent rotation role for Miami in 2020-21, but his averages of 4.4 points, 3.5 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 0.9 steals in 21.3 minutes per contest weren't commensurate with a $15 million salary. Though his shooting efficiency has fallen off a cliff during his past two seasons in Miami, Iguodala's wealth of experience and ability to guard multiple positions at a high level should allow him to find an opportunity with a contending team at a lower salary. According to Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press, Iguodala is expected to meet with the Warriors when free agency opens, and the Lakers are also likely to express interest in bringing the 37-year-old aboard.
Iguodala (hip) will be available for Saturday's Game 1 against the Bucks, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. A hip injury caused Iguodala to miss the final game of the regular season, but he'll be ready for the start of the playoffs. In 21.3 minutes per game this season, he averaged 4.4 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.3 assists.
Iguodala (hip) practiced Wednesday, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Iguodala missed the final game of the season due to a hip injury, but he should be expected to play in Game 1 against the Bucks on Saturday.
Iguodala has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Detroit due to a hip injury. Iguodala will be one of several players held out for the final game of the regular season since Miami has already clinched a playoff spot. Nemanja Bjelica and KZ Okpala could see increased run.
