Report: Andre Iguodala extension details with Heat, revealed

The Memphis Grizzlies decided to trade Andre Iguodala before Thursday’s deadline, sending the three-time champion to the Miami Heat as part of a three-team transaction.

Additional information is beginning to trickle down with regards to Iguodala’s deal. He agreed to a two-year, $30 million extension with Miami, according to initial reports. Now, however, ESPN’s Zach Lowe is reporting that there is an addendum in the deal.

According to Lowe, Iguodala’s new extension will hold a 7.5 percent trade kicker:

This is something that doesn’t matter now, but could come into play later if things don’t work out in Miami.

Iggy has not played a single game this season, as he was awaiting a buyout or trade from the Grizzles. Now, though, he’ll have a chance to play on a contending team.

Iguodala’s new teammate, Jimmy Butler, seems to be happy about the trade, noting that the Heat are “ready to go to war” with their new players:

Iguodala, now 36 years of age, made 68 appearances with the Warriors during the 2018-19 campaign (13 starts), racking up averages of 5.7 points on 50.0 percent shooting from the field (33.3 percent from beyond the arc), 3.7 rebounds, 3.2 assists and just under one steal (0.9) in 23.2 minutes per outing.

The Heat will be back in action on Friday night, when they’ll face off against the Sacramento Kings. Tip-off inside the Golden 1 Center is set for 10:00 p.m. ET.
