Andre Iguodala returning to Warriors on one-year deal: reports

By , Audacy Sports

The Warriors have reportedly reunited with a key contributor from their title runs of the last decade.

The Dubs are said to be in agreement with forward Andre Iguodala on a one-year contract, according to multiple reports.

The reunion will also mark something of a farewell tour for the 17-year-veteran, who told the New York Times that he plans to retire as a Dub at season's end.

"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 Gray Lady on Friday.

Salary terms of the deal were not yet reported.

The 37-year-old former Arizona Wildcat spent the last two seasons with Miami Heat, following his departure from the Warriors after their loss to the Toronto Raptors in the 2019 NBA Finals.

He broke in with the Philadelphia 76ers, where he earned his sole All-Star nod, and had one season with the Denver Nuggets before joining the Warriors for the 2013-14 campaign.

Iguodala won three titles as a "glue guy" extraordinaire with the Warriors, and was awarded Finals MVP in 2015. Stephen Curry and coach Steve Kerr have frequently cited Iggy as the consummate teammate, brining strong leadership and versatility in the lineup.

Iguodala said the chance for a reunion before potentially hanging up his sneakers for good was too special to pass up.

"The relationship with the fans, the relationship with the Bay, the opportunity to end it here, was just something special."
