Miami Heat swingman Andre Iguodala has an estimated net worth of $50 million in 2020. The Illinois native, who began his NBA career with the Philadelphia 76ers, has played for the Denver Nuggets, Golden State Warriors, and Heat as well. He has career NBA averages of 12.0 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 4.3 assists while shooting 46.5 percent from the field, 33.3 percent from beyond the arc, and 70.9 percent from the free-throw line.
Once the 2020-21 NBA season ends, Iguodala will have pocketed $179,672,344 in NBA money from the Sixers, Nuggets, Warriors, and Heat. He earned $10,388,784 from the Memphis Grizzlies despite not playing a single game for the team in 2019-20.
Before the 2020-21 season starts, Iguodala will have made $55,715,668 from the Sixers, $14,968,250 from the Nuggets, $78,814,815 from the Warriors and $19,784,827 from the Heat.
When Iguodala’s contract ends with the Heat in 2022, he will have made $208,734,844 through his NBA contracts. The former Finals MVP has invested in more than 40 companies, including Allbirds, Casper, and Jumia. Iguodala told CNBC his best funding decision yet is Zoom Video Communications.
“Zoom has done really well,” Andre Iguodala said on Squawk Alley. “They’ve just been getting after it. It’s showing in the stock price, but I think it will continue to grow. I’ve grown to learn and grown to put a lot of my thought and effort into learning the space and playing catch up. Being a professional athlete, you tend to not know about that space because it’s not the sexy something that everyone’s talking about.”
Iguodala finished his Sixers career with averages of 15.3 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 4.9 assists in 615 games. He played one season with the Nuggets in 2012-13, where he put up 13.0 points, 5.3 boards, and 5.4 assists.
Then in the summer of 2013, Iguodala joined the Warriors, where he won three titles and became the Finals MVP in 2015 when the Dubs defeated LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in six games.
In the 2015 Finals against LeBron and the Cavs, Iguodala averaged 16.3 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 4.0 assists while shooting 52.1 percent from the field and 40.0 percent from beyond the arc. He almost left the Warriors in the summer of 2017 to sign with the Houston Rockets, but the Dubs came to their senses and re-signed Iggy to a three-year, $48 million contract.
In 2019, Iguodala came out with a book called “The Sixth Man: A Memoir.” It was an instant national bestseller. The book talked about Iguodala’s journey from Illinois to the NBA, along with his experience with racial tension.
The Warriors were forced to trade Iguodala to the Grizzlies in the summer of 2019 for cap reasons. He finished his run with the Dubs with averages of 7.3 points, 3.9 rebounds, and 3.4 assists in the regular season. In the playoffs with the Warriors, Iggy put up 9.3 points, 4.4 boards, and 3.6 assists in 104 games. He played in five NBA Finals and was part of the 2015-16 team which won 73 games in the regular season, an NBA record.
Iguodala didn’t play for the Grizzlies since he wasn’t interested in being part of a rebuilding team, though Memphis actually shocked a lot of people and almost made the 2020 playoffs. The Grizzlies traded Iguodala to the Heat, who then gave the forward a two-year extension worth $30 million. One thing Iguodala knows how to handle is his money.
The Heat lost to LeBron and the Los Angeles Lakers in the 2020 Finals. Iguodala and James have matched up five times in the Finals. Iggy is 3-2 vs. The King.
Iguodala’s net worth is only going to rise moving forward. His investments are going to continue to pay off, especially with Zoom, which has blown up due to COVID-19. Knowing Iguodala, he’ll probably invest in other companies moving forward since he’s interested in the tech world and learning ways to expand his financial portfolio.
Iguodala is one of the most versatile players in NBA history, but he’s also one of the smartest guys you’ll ever meet. He’s constantly teaching young players about investing their money and being smart with it since so many athletes go broke when they retire from their respective sport.
When it’s all said and done, Iguodala could make the Hall of Fame since he’s a Finals MVP. His stats aren’t Hall of Fame worthy, but having a Finals MVP holds a lot of weight with the voters. Iguodala is also a financial Hall of Famer. Having a net worth of $50 million is pretty incredible when you consider where he comes from and that number is only going to rise as the years go on.
Andre Iguodala has accumulated generational money for his family. In this uncertain economy due to COVID-19, you can’t help but admire him for that and be happy for the do-it-all NBA swingman.
