The Warriors have more than $17 million in expiring contracts and if they make a move it would likely be for a small forward.

Andre Iguodala has been on the radar of the Warriors for a while, according to team sources.

"If Dorell Wright is coming off the bench," one team source said, "we're a really good team. That would solve two problems. It would give us the upgrade in talent, and it would bolster our bench significantly."

Iguodala is signed through the 13-14 season.

Via San Jose


Good move? Who would be involved?

as a 76ers fan the only player on that team that would be of any value to us would be Curry and since we're not going to get him I see no reason to ship Iggy to Golden State.

That will only be a step backwards for us.

Doug Collins has actually been very happy with his leadership as of late, if we are moving him it will have to be for a player or players that make sense for us in the immediate future.

Iggy is so overrated. If he can't take Philly anywhere, how is he going to take Golden State anywhere in the western conference?

Swashcuff
01-31-2011, 08:45 PM
I am not being a homer on this at but IMO if Iggy was to go to a system such as the one in Golden State and start alongside a quality PG such as Steph Curry he could actually flourish into a fringe All-Star. Especially if he begins to play less on the ball and more as a slashing scoring option.

Luol Deng: The Chicago forward would give the Warriors better size and rebounding at that position. He also would be the Warriors' most-efficient scorer at that position in recent memory. Obstacles? Deng is due $40 million over next three seasons. Is he that good? Also, Chicago would probably want Ellis but would have to settle for expiring contracts. Is that enough?

i doubt we would give up deng for expiring's or monta. the only scenario i see that happening is if golden state, bulls and denver do a three team trade and golden state takes deng

Iggy is so overrated. If he can't take Philly anywhere, how is he going to take Golden State anywhere in the western conference?

Because he wont be relied on to be their franchise player and #1 scoring option. With Curry, Lee, Wright, Reggie Williams (assuming they all stay) they'd have more than enough fire power. In a system such as theirs he will be able to maximise on his playmaking/finishing ablilities. Chemistry wise he'll be a better fit for them than Monta currently is.

2nd why would we want Roddy when we already have our PG of in the future in Jrue Holiday and our ball hog in Louis Williams.

3rd you can't trade injured players.

I dont understand it. Chicago fans always talk about how good Deng is yet they are so quick to include him in any possible trade that comes up. The Bulls are playing great ball right now, why would they mess that up by trading Deng? More importantly, why would they mess that up by bringing in someone like Monta who, although vastly talented and a good player, has a history of being a nuisance?

Chicago is stuck with Deng and his contract for the foreseeable future, IMO. Which I dont think is as bad as people seem to make it, other than financially.

This isn't fair at all. The only way the Sixers would move Iguodala is if they got a young big in return. The Sixers already have Holiday, Turner, Lou Williams, and Meeks in the back court. Why would they want Roddy? So basically we'd be trading Andre for an expiring and a bench player essentially getting us nowhere. IF the Sixers traded Iggy to the Warriors, Andris Biedrins and a 1st round pick would have to be discussed.

Chicago shouldn't mess with their lineup at all unless it means they are getting a SG. They are a starting SG short of being a serious contender.

Even that in itself takes us back a step. We are looking to move forward with the young talent we have and add some experience not more youth. We'd be in the same boat as the Pacers, building through the draft almost every off-season

The only reason Monta would make any sense for us is because we'd finally have a consistent scorer that we are currently lacking, he'd also have the ideal running mate at guard in Jrue Holiday who is a much better defender than Curry and can pick up the slack for Monta on that end of the court. Holiday is our PG of the future there is no way Monta comes in and takes a starting position away from him. IF he was a sixer he'd be starting at SG and PG.

Yupp it's horrible to be stuck with a 17 and 6 Small Forward that plays good d with a consistent 3 point shot. Those numbers hardly even do his justice, Deng's legit. A lot of Bulls fans were quick to want to trade him when he was hurt because he had an ugly contract for his production at the time. He's worth every penny now.

We have a misleading title on our hands. There was no rumor, inside sources, or any information coming from the Warriors management about there being interest in Andre Iguodala within this article. The only information coming from a source related to the Warriors is:

"If Dorell Wright is coming off the bench," one team source said, "we're a really good team. That would solve two problems. It would give us the upgrade in talent, and it would bolster our bench significantly."

Iguodala was the first player mentioned out of him, Josh Smith, Deng, Green, and Granger by the author of the article. It was simply pure speculation, nothing different than the trade proposals us PSD posters make on a daily basis.

Given the fact that their window of opportunity is currently closing a bit, I'd totally understand why they'd make such a move. If Dirk was 2-3 years younger I'd fully agree with you but fact is there isn't much uphill movement for their best players going forward.

And then where do we stand?

For the next 5 years we continue to be a rebuilding team? We'd love to shed some salary but this is a team that can possibly be relevant again within the next 2-3 years we need value for value not to restart everything. I won't mind giving Brand for picks and expirings but much more could be had for Iguodala.

Well place Iggy in that system with those type's of players (especially a PG like Step Curry who can not only run the floor well but flat out shoot the basketball) and you maximize Iggy's skill set. Much like Wilson Chandler playing so well in your system in NY. Suddenly his contract starts to look less horrible. That system is ideal for Iguodala.

agreed, also heard a Rod Thorn interview saying Iguodala is the Darrell Revis of the NBA.............................i'm still trying to understand that. I would believe that championship run of the Pistons, Ben Wallace was the Darrell Revis of the NBA. See the horrible comparison? Ben Wallace = Intimidating. Andre Iguodala = Same initials as Allen Iverson? Hated the fact that the Sixers FO at the time was scared to let Iggy go because they'd have NO ONE in the seats if he signed elsewhere.

Back to the topic: they can have Iguodala and that weird look he does after a hard slam dunk. Looking like Bubba Gump and ****.

Also proud to say I saw him at an Apple Store here in South Jersey, a woman wanted a picture with him, he asked me and I said no, and continued with my business.

So what aren't we rebuilding? :confused:

No one wants Brand. NO ONE!!! Don't pin that on the management.

As far as Iggy goes we need to make the best deal for our franchise. You want to know how we stay in mediocrity? Trading away our better players for crumbs, expirings and a 2016 1st round pick. What next do we do? Look for a big name FA at C. Ok so lets say we trade away Iggy and are able to sign Marc Gasol but he doesn't materialize and doesn't improve in the least bit, where do we go from there?

We need a solid foundation if we are to rebuild. Jrue and Evan are a good start now build on that with a proven veteran winner. If we can't get that right now for Iggy it really doesn't make sense trading him because we'll in all likeliness taking a step backwards by doing so.

Dude we need to move BRAND for expirings. No one is missing the boat here bro. Elton Brand is who we need to move for expirings. Andre Iguodala even with his horrendous contract and dive in production is still worth much more than expirings and picks. We are destined for mediocrity if we use one of our better players in the prime of his youth in a trade for expirings. A lot more could potentially be had for Iggy than just expirings.

Why don't you guys seem to realize this. He still has a much more value league wide than you guys even realize.

How is Iggy slowing down Turner's progress? Evan Turner is slowing down Evan Turner's progress. Louis Williams is slowing down Turner's progress.

We can't be picky he must go sounds like someone has no clue how the NBA is ran. Just trade him for the first deal any team offers right. Then we rebuild. What happens if Turner doesn't pan out. Where do we go from there.

Your logic has us destined for mediocrity.
