Iguodala has sat out the entire 2019-20 season after the Warriors traded the vet to the young Grizzlies due to a grievance over Memphis failing to trade him again or buy out the three-time NBA champion.
This past week saw Iguodala beef with Grizzlies teammates, including Rookie of the Year front-runner point guard Ja Morant, the second overall pick of the 2019 draft. Iguodala was led to believe Memphis would find him a new home shortly after the Warriors had to dump his salary in the past offseason following five straight trips to the Finals. Two-time MVP Stephen Curry—Iguodala’s ex-teammate in the Bay Area—defended the one-time All-Star Iggy.
Iguodala’s seven-month roller coaster ride with the Grizzlies is over, though, as he gets traded to the Heat and plans to sign a two-year, $30 million extension with Pat Riley’s club.
