The Golden State Warriors fresh off a second NBA title in the last three years have to quickly shift gears to some critical decisions in free agency that could have a major impact on the roster for next season.

One of which is veteran forward Andre Iguodala, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent after completing the final year of his four-year, $48 million deal. According to Tim Kawakami of The Mercury News, Iguodala is expected to ink a multi-year contract with the Warriors.

Iguodala will likely sign a multi-year extension with the Warriors worth somewhere between $8M to $12M per year.

This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise as the 33-year-old hinted during the NBA Finals that he would re-sign with the team this upcoming summer. Iguodala could command a new contract with a base salary with another franchise where he would be making near double the pay he will receive from Golden State.

The 13-year-old veteran has been a big piece to the puzzle for the Warriors over his first four years with the team. Following his first season, he has transitioned to the sixth man role where he has excelled as one of the primary contributors off the bench.

He was a major factor in their first title in 2015 earning the NBA Finals MVP award averaging 16.3 points on 52.1 percent shooting from the field and 40 percent from beyond the arc with 5.8 rebounds, and 4.0 assists per game. He also showed up big in Game 5 of the 2017 NBA Finals scoring 20 points off the bench helping the Warriors close out the Cleveland Cavaliers.

With Iguodala signing a relatively team-friendly deal, it will allow for them to pay both Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry near the max contracts that each is looking to sign.
