UPDATE: 1:44 a.m. ET

In a surprise twist, the Sacramento Kings have rescinded their four-year, $56 million contract offer to free agent Andre Iguodala, according to Sam Amick of USA Today Sports.

Sacramento originally offered the swingman while mulling whether to match the Pelican’s four-year, $44 million offer for restricted free agent Tyreke Evans.

It’s not yet clear why the Kings took their offer off the table after presenting it to Iguodala earlier in the day. The former Nuggets swingman took to Twitter after learning the stunning news:

Iguodala was scheduled to make $15.9 million next season before opting out of his deal with Denver and will be eligible to sign a new four-year deal elsewhere or sign an extension up to five years with the Denver Nuggets.

Iguodala spent his first eight NBA seasons with the Philadelphia 76ers and averaged 13 points, 5.3 rebounds and 5.4 assists in his first season with the Nuggets, who won a franchise-record 57 games last season.

Does this mean the Kings might do a sign and trade with the Pelicans to get something in return for Tyreke Evans?  Or will they simply match the Pelicans offer and keep a disgruntled Evans?
