There are reports circulating online suggesting that Andre Iguodala is thinking about leaving the Golden State Warriors as soon as free agency hits. Of course, this comes as a surprise, most especially to the fans of the NBA 2017 champions. The superstar has been a key member of the team, helping the boys reach success over the course of four years.

Andre Iguodala will reportedly consider other teams in the league this offseason. In fact, the soon-to-be free agent has already expressed his interest towards Chicago Bulls, Minnesota Timberwolves, Utah Jazz, Los Angeles Clippers and Atlanta Hawks, to name a few.

The good thing, though, is that the Warriors’ front office still has enough time to convince him to stay, if they want him.

Andre Iguodala’s worth in the market

Believe it or not, Iggy has a market value of $20 million per year. So, in a sense, whichever team decides to acquire him must go to certain lengths. Nonetheless, his skills and capabilities cannot be denied. He has been a reliable player and has won two NBA championships, in one of which he was the Finals MVP – all this in his four-year stint as a Warrior.

When the Golden State Warriors acquired Andre Iguodala, he was not there to play the go-to guy. Steve Kerr, the team’s head coach, specifically asked him to be the team’s sixth man.

He was to come out from the bench and provide the team the support they needed. This was definitely a hard pill to swallow considering he was a player with an all-star caliber, most especially during his run in the Philadelphia 76ers. Still, he took the role with pride.

Kevin Durant to the rescue

Apparently, though, Kevin Durant is not ready to say goodbye to Andre Iguodala.

The 2017 NBA Finals MVP is willing to renegotiate his contract with the Golden State Warriors to make way for Iguodala this coming summer. Durant is reportedly ready to turn down a $27.7 million player option for the next season and re-sign for at least $4 million, which is totally less than the numbers he previously signed.

Kevin Durant wants to make such a move in order to provide the front office a window to sign Andre Iguodala up with a bigger deal and perhaps match the worth Iguodala has in the market. But of course, while this is an offer that is too difficult to refuse, the decision still heavily relies on Iggy. Well, at least he now knows that there is someone willing to take the cut for him. There are rumors suggesting that Iguodala wants out because he desires to be in a team where he is the main man, not the sixth man that Kerr asked him to be.
