Andre Iguodala Agrees to Return to Golden State Warriors

The 37-year-old swingman spent six seasons with the Warriors prior to spending the past two seasons as a member of the Miami Heat, who last week declined a $15 million team option for next season.

Iguodala averaged just 4.4 points in 21.3 minutes over 63 games last season, but he will provide an important leadership role on the team he helped push to three NBA titles during his tenure.

“Who would have thought I’d have the opportunity to go back to the place where I was able to have, whatever you want to call it, legacy years, in terms of the accomplishments, winning multiple championships, the relationships that I was able to build with some of my closest friends and teammates?” Iguodala told the New York Times on Friday.

Iguodala won NBA championships with the Warriors in 2015, 2017 and 2018. The 17-year veteran has career averages of 11.6 points, 5.0 rebounds and 4.2 assists.

Iguodala said he pondered retirement after last season, but came to the realization that he’s “got some more time left.”

“Where I’m comfortable at is I can decide when I’m ready to go,” Iguodala told the Times. “I think I want to leave with just a little bit left. I don’t want to go out on one leg. I know I’ve got a few more years. It’s just my decision whether it’s one or two or three or whatever it may be. I shouldn’t even say three. One or two.”
