Andre Iguodala’s son almost cried when his dad told him he was leaving the Warriors
After briefly teasing possibilities of joining another team out West, Andre Iguodala eventually decided to stick with his current team, the Golden State Warriors, to the tune of a new three-year, $48 million contract.
Iguodala entertained recent meetings with the Spurs, Rockets, Lakers, and Kings, but needed just a little over a day after the NBA’s free agency moratorium had been lifted to return to the Bay Area for three more seasons.
In an interview on NBA TV, Iguodala came candid and explained that his 10-year-old son played a major role in his decision to stay with Golden State.

Iguodala cheerily told the story of his son breaking in tears after finding out that his dad might leave the Warriors, only to be corrected by his son in the background of the interview saying that he was only close to crying but never really didn’t.
The Warriors would’ve shed tears of their own had the 13-year veteran indeed jumped ship and took his talents to a Western Conference rival. After all, it was Iguodala who played his heart out for the team during the 2015 NBA Finals en route to winning Finals MVP honors.
Dubs fans have Andrew Tyler Iguodala II to thank in somewhat convincing his pops to play for the one and only franchise that has given their entire family the greatest amount success and joy.
