Is there a mistake in this article? Have there really been talks about bringing in Andre Iguodala? Would Philly really part with him for Monta and some other pieces? A backcourt of Curry and Iguodala would be a much nicer combination, in my opinion, than Curry and Ellis. Iguodala would bring better size (a true 2/3), much better perimeter defense, nice scoring / facilitating on offense, a better locker room presence...etc. I just haven't heard anything else about this, but I would love it to be true.
The story reads:
"Rumor central: General manager Larry Riley dismissed reports that the Warriors would trade Stephen Curry in a deal to get Carmelo Anthony from Denver, but the idea of grabbing Andre Iguodala from Philadelphia hasn't gone away.
Asked directly about the Curry-Anthony deal, Riley said: "I don't address trades, but Steph Curry is here for the long haul. He is a long-term Golden State Warrior."
Curry didn't seem too upset about the rumors, but he did perk up about the idea of playing with Iguodala. The Sixers' wing was the stopper on Curry's U.S. team that won gold in Istanbul.
"He is the best lockup, one-on-one defender I've seen in a long time," Curry said. "He took the challenge every game of guarding the best guy and shutting him down. He really put us in position to control every game. Any team would be better with him on its roster.""
