Report: Iguodala likely to opt out of final year of contract

Andre Iguodala indicated yesterday that he is likely to opt out of the last year of his contract for more "long term security". However, there is a catch.


According to our good friend Chris Tomasson of Fox Sports/Fox Sports Florida, Andre Iguodala indicated that he would likely opt out of his current contract, which pays him $16 million next season in exchange for long term security.

Iguodala told Tomasson:

Iguodala is on the books to make $15.9 million next season, likely more than he could get from any team for 2013-14. But he could become a free agent and then sign a multi-year deal that would pay less next season but would provide long-term security.

"Yeah, definitely,’’ Iguodala, 29, said of that being a distinct possibility. "You got to weigh options. Security-wise, a player would opt out, especially with the type of season we’ve had as a team. Teams know what I can bring to them, and I know (the Nuggets) know what I can bring to a team here.

However in the same article Iguodala indicates that a return to Denver isn't assured and that the Nuggets will be among his options.
