According to sources, the Golden State Warriors have agreed to a four-year, $48 million deal with Andre Iguodala. Golden State sent Andris Biedrins, Richard Jefferson, and Brandon Rush to Utah in exchange for Kevin Murphy. The shuffling of players enabled the Warriors to clear enough cap space to sign Iguodala.
Iguodala averaged 13 PPG, 5.4 APG, and 5.3 RPG in 80 games played in the 2012-13 NBA season. So, what does this all mean for the Warriors chance's in the Dwight Howard sweepstakes? Golden State would only be able to aquire D12 via a sign-and-trade deal with the Lake Show rather than signing him outright. In other words, their chances are slim but they've still got a shot. With big moves already being made by the Clippers and Warriors this offseason, it's looking like Laker fans might want to get used to their team being the third best squad in the Pacific division. Watch out for those Kings and Suns! JK...sort of.
