REPORT: Grizzlies have allowed Andre Iguodala to work out away from team until suitable trade is found
Andre Iguodala is currently a member of the Memphis Grizzlies. However, this partnership may not last too much longer, with Iguodala away from the team as Memphis continues to seek out a suitable trade partner for the former Golden State Warriors standout.
More specifically, Iguodala has reportedly been granted permission to work out away from the team as the Grizzlies weigh their options.
There is a mutual understanding, per sources, that the situation may not reach a resolution until well into the season. On December 15, players who signed as free agents this summer will be eligible to be traded, potentially expanding the range of possible deals. The NBA trade deadline is February 6th.
Iguodala will remain on the Grizzlies roster, likely well into the season. However, the team agreed the veteran can continue private workouts at a location of his choosing while Memphis pursues trades involving the former Golden State Warrior and NBA Finals MVP.
The Warriors traded Iguodala and a future first round pick to the Grizzlies as part of a salary-clearing move to make way for All-Star guard D’Angelo Russell. Iguodala immediately became a candidate for a buyout but nothing ever materialized.
Several teams are interested in acquiring Iguodala, but the Grizzlies will only part ways with him if the price is right.
