Report: Andre Iguodala prepared to sit out season if Grizzlies don’t trade him

Andre Iguodala, Grizzlies

Andre Iguodala is prepared to sit out the rest of this season if the Memphis Grizzlies don’t trade him to one of the agreed-upon teams he designated by Thursday’s trade deadline, according to David Aldridge of The Athletic.

Iguodala is owed $17.2 million this season, the final year of his contract. The Grizzlies will not buy him out.

Last season for the Golden State Warriors, Iguodala averaged 5.7 points, 3.7 rebounds and 3.2 assists while shooting 50.0 percent from the field, 33.3 percent from beyond the arc and 58.2 percent from the free-throw line. The 35-year-old swingman put up 9.8 points, 4.3 rebounds and 4.0 assists in the 2019 playoffs.

The Grizzlies remain confident they will be able to fetch some type of return for Iguodala, who has been training on his own while away from the Grizzlies.

So far, Iguodala has been linked to the Los Angeles Lakers, Los Angeles Clippers and Houston Rockets. There have also been a few reports which have said Iguodala is considered a virtual lock to return to the Warriors next season.

The Grizzlies are 24-25 on the season entering Monday’s matchup with the Detroit Pistons. Ja Morant and Jaren Jackson Jr. have Memphis playing inspired basketball. If the playoffs started today, the Grizzlies would be in it and would have a first round matchup against LeBron James, Anthony Davis and the Los Angeles Lakers.
