Let me tread lightly here. Anti-clickbait warriors wait for you at the gate with stuff like this. Sources say they’re armed with keyboards and are unafraid to quote-tweet.
On Thursday ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne and Chris Haynes reported that somebody else reported that Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant would be willing to take less money on his next contract if it meant keeping the team’s “core” group of players intact.
Kevin Durant taking less than a max extension this summer could let the Warriors keep their core together for years. https://t.co/pqXjCumaHi— SportsCenter (@SportsCenter) June 1, 2017
That core does not include 33-year-old forward Andre Iguodala. Shelburne and Hayes report league sources have stated that the Phoenix Suns, as well as the Minnesota Timberwolves and Atlanta Hawks would be interested in acquiring the services of the 13-year NBA veteran.
At least one Sun sees the value in a young team adding a player like Iguodala.
Iggy IQ, defense, and pedigree has huge value for a young team. He plays the game the right way and every young team needs guys like that https://t.co/D43QymdNcN— Jared Dudley (@JaredDudley619) June 1, 2017
Iguodala is putting the finishing touches on a 4-year $48 million dollar contract this season. Is this an addition you’d like to see the Suns make, and what do you think Phoenix should pay for a player like Iggy? You have to decide now.
