Andre Iguodala to stay away from Grizzlies, as team seeks trade

Andre Iguodala and the Grizzlies have agreed that Iguodala will stay away from the team while Memphis looks for a trade partner.

Fantasy Impact

Originally a buyout candidate, the Grizzlies have decided to instead seek a trade for the 35-year-old veteran wing. In the interim, Iguodala will stay away from Memphis, which opens training camp next week.

Andre Iguodala likely to be bought out, sign with Lakers

Andre Iguodala is likely to pursue a buyout from the Memphis Grizzlies and sign with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Fantasy Impact

Iguodala was traded to Memphis in a salary-clearing move for the Warriors, and he is likely to be bought out before playing for the Grizzlies. He’s scheduled to make $17.2M in 2019, but he will certainly take less than that in the buyout to become an unrestricted free agent. Lakers GM Rob Pelinka is Iguodala’s former agent, and Lakers forward LeBron James has had a strong interest in playing with Iguodala for years. The former Finals MVP and three-time champ with Golden State could provide a smart and professional veteran presence in the locker room, most likely at the low cost of the veteran’s minimum.

Andre Iguodala traded to Grizzlies

Andre Iguodala has been traded to the Memphis Grizzlies, per Adrian Wojnarowski.

Fantasy Impact

Iguodala has one year left on a three-year, $48M deal he signed in 2017 that will pay him $17.2M this season. The Grizzlies receive a future first-round pick from the Warriors in exchange for unloading the salary of the aging vet. Iguodala helped Golden State capture its first championship in the current dynasty back in 2015, earning Finals MVP. He could be a valuable contributor off the bench for Memphis this season or a possible trade chip in another deal. Golden State opens up some cap space to make additional moves in free agency.

Andre Iguodala headed to the Memphis Grizzlies

Andre Iguodala has been traded to the Memphis Grizzlies after six years on the Golden State Warriors. The Dubs also sent a protected first-round pick in 2024 (picks #1-4) that can lead to a protected first-round pick in 2025 (pick #1), or an unprotected pick in 2026.

Fantasy Impact

While the Warriors will miss Iguodala's lockdown defense and clutch playoff performances, the transaction was necessary to clear cap space for their trade for D'Angelo Russell. The move helps give the Warriors more financial flexibility but also makes the roster younger as well. Iguodala now becomes the elder statesmen for a young Grizzlies team looking to move on from the Grit-and-Grind era.

Andre Iguodala (left calf tightness) will play in game 2 vs. Raptors

An MRI showed no structural damage to Andre Iguodala’s left calf and he will be good to for game two in Toronto Sunday night. The Golden State Warriors small forward had six points to go along with six rebounds and seven assists in game one.

Fantasy Impact

This is good news for the Warriors, as Kevin Durant has already been ruled out for game two. Iguodala is valuable on both ends of the floor for the Warriors, and his defense on Kawhi Leonard will be pivotal for his team to succeed. Look for Iguodala to contribute across the board in game two with Durant on the sidelines.
