The 35-year-old swingman is currently in the midst of his sixth season as a member of the Warriors. Now a three-time NBA champion, Iguodala previously suited up for both the Philadelphia 76ers and Denver Nuggets before ultimately making his way to the Bay Area. While spending just one season, the 2012-13 campaign, in Denver, Iguodala notably spent his first eight NBA seasons in the City of Brotherly Love as a member of the 76ers.
Over the course of his 49 regular season appearances in 2018-19, 11 of which have been starts, Iguodala is averaging a well-rounded 5.8 points, 3.9 rebounds and 3.3 assists per outing. Currently averaging 23.4 minutes per game this time around, Iguodala is posting 0.8 blocks and 0.8 steals per contest as well.
Heading into the team’s Sunday night matchup against the Heat, the Warriors will be sporting a stellar 39-15 record, good for first place in the always competitive Western Conference. However, the Nuggets are not far behind the Warriors as Denver is sporting a 37-18 record of their own as it stands today.
On the other hand, the Heat are just 25-28 on the season, though such a mark is still good for eighth place in the Eastern Conference standings.
