Report: Nuggets' Iguodala will opt out of contract
Summary of 2 articles · Updated Jun 15, 2013
Denver Nuggets guard Andre Iguodala is expected to opt out of his contract for next season and become a free agent, according to multiple reports. An All-Star and the Nuggets' best defender, Iguodala is set to make $16.2 million next season. Iguodala was scheduled to make $15.9 million next season and will be eligible to sign a new four-year deal elsewhere or sign an extension up to five years with the Nuggets. Iguodala averaged 13 points, 5.4 assists and 5.3 assists last season, his first with the Nuggets after arriving in a four-team blockbuster trade from the Philadelphia 76ers that also involved Dwight Howard and Andrew Bynum. By opting out, he'll have the ability to sign a five-year contract with the Nuggets or a four-year deal with another team. In perhaps a bit of good news, Danilo Gallinari, who was expected to miss at least half of next season following surgery to repair a torn ACL, may return sooner than expected.
