Andre Iguodala Won’t Play for the Grizzlies


Dean Neal, Reporter

On Monday, September 23, the Memphis Grizzlies and Andre Iguodala mutually agreed to part ways with each other. Iguodala was traded from The Golden State Warriors in the NBA offseason, where he has won three NBA championships and the NBA Finals MVP, in 2015. Andre staying away from the Grizzlies came when he told them that he wanted to be traded to a contending team and the Grizzlies never did.

With the NBA training camp getting ready to start and the NBA 2019-2020 season about a month away, Iguodala has informed the team that he will not practice or play until he is traded. While Andre is away from the team he will be training and staying in shape and conditioning to be ready to provide a spark with whatever team he will be traded too. Iguodala has until the trade deadline to be traded, February 6th, 2020.

Iguodala had a good season for being 35 years old and in his 15th NBA season. He averaged 5.7 points, 3.7 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game as Golden State’s sixth man last season. Those averages increased to 9.8 points, 4.3 rebounds and 4.0 assists during the playoffs, in which Iguodala started the majority of the games.

It’s safe to say whatever team Andre Iguodala goes to he will have a very big role.
