NBA Free Agency 2013: Andre Iguodala plans to opt out, Golden State Warriors interested

Doug Pensinger

Because what would the offseason be without rumors connecting Andre Iguodala to the Golden State Warriors?

Without even getting into the chaos erupting in Denver since the Nuggets lost to the Golden State Warriors in the first round of the playoffs this year, let's get straight to it the latest Andre Iguodala gossip:

  1. Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski has reported that the Nuggets star plans to opt out of his contract.
  2. Marcus Thompson tweeted that there is mutual interest between the potentially-soon-to-be free agent and the Golden State Warriors.

Of course, for the Warriors to make that happen there would need to be a sign-and-trade and, as Thompson also notes, that would probably have to include either Harrison Barnes or Klay Thompson, which is the kind of move that could haunt a franchise (and fanbase) for years to come if either of those young guys explodes into a star.

It feels like this community has been through discussion about whether to trade (the pick that became) Barnes or Thompson for Iguodala so many times that there's no need to elaborate, but I guess the question is whether this past season - both from those two individually or on the team level - changes how we feel about exchanging one of them for an elite wing defender?
