Warriors make trade, sign Andre Iguodala, per reports
Andre Iguodala has signed a four-year, $48 million contract with the Golden State Warriors, Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting. This came after the Warriors unloaded Richard Jefferson and Andris Biedrins in a trade with the Utah Jazz. Marcus Thompson is reporting that the Warriors also included Brandon Rush in the deal with the Jazz. The Jazz will also receive multiple draft picks, including a 2014 first-rounder, per Wojnarowski.
Iguodala spent last season with the Denver Nuggets after playing his first eight seasons for the Philadelphia 76ers. He averaged 13 points, 5.3 rebounds and 5.4 assists last season. He will help improve the Warriors’ perimeter play on both ends of the court. Earlier this week, the Sacramento Kings rescinded their $56 million contract offer to Iguodala.
Biedrins, Jefferson and Rush were set to make a combined $24 million next season with the Warriors. Details of the Warriors-Jazz trade are still emerging.
