2013 NBA Free Agency: Kings pull offer to Andre Iguodala, no longer pursuing him

New, comments

Well, that was a quick turn of events.

USA TODAY Sports

Earlier today it was believed that the Sacramento Kings were the leaders to sign Denver Nuggets free agent Andre Iguodala. The Kings had an offer on the table of 4-years and $56 million, according to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski.

At about 11:00 p.m. on July 2nd Iguodala Tweeted out the follow two notes:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p>WOW!!!!</p>&mdash; Andre Iguodala (@andre) <a href="https://twitter.com/andre/statuses/352290452126441472">July 3, 2013</a></blockquote>

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p>Really?? Ok... MOTIVATION!!!!!!</p>&mdash; Andre Iguodala (@andre) <a href="https://twitter.com/andre/statuses/352290588911087616">July 3, 2013</a></blockquote>

Iguodala has been known to be a little cryptic on Twitter and then Sam Amick from USA Today Tweeted the following and was followed up by Woj:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-partner="tweetdeck"><p>The Kings have pulled their offer for free agent Andre Iguodala &amp; will no longer pursue him, I&#39;m told. Story to come.</p>&mdash; Sam Amick (@sam_amick) <a href="https://twitter.com/sam_amick/statuses/352298885693190145">July 3, 2013</a></blockquote>

How did the Kings go from being the "favorite" to land the shooting guard to pulling their offer? Only time will tell. Or Amick will ...

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-partner="tweetdeck"><p>Kings wanted answer that Iguodala wasn&#39;t ready to give, so they pulled out and moved on. They&#39;ll regroup &amp; decide on Tyreke Evans etc.</p>&mdash; Sam Amick (@sam_amick) <a href="https://twitter.com/sam_amick/statuses/352301654755917824">July 3, 2013</a></blockquote>

Who will be the next top suitor for Iguodala? Will the Nuggets lock up their free agent?

Stay tuned ...
