Heat finalize Andre Iguodala trade, extension with Grizzlies

Andre Iguodala, Heat, Grizzlies

The Memphis Grizzlies have agreed to trade veteran wing Andre Iguodala to the Miami Heat, according to the Athletic’s Shams Charania.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski also reports that the 36-year-old Iguodala, a former Finals MVP with the Golden State Warriors, will sign an extension with the Heat.

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.

The Heat also plan to pursue Oklahoma City Thunder forward Danilo Gallinari.
