Andre Iguodala is in waiting while the Memphis Grizzlies continue to wait on offers for the NBA veteran. So far, no team has come forward to take that chance. Likely, the 35-year-old will technically be a Memphis Grizzlies player when the new season opens. However, that tenure is not expected to last long.

The worst-case scenario is for Iguodala to wait until February to figure out where he will be playing next. If not traded, he is likely to be bought out. Then again, even if a team gets him, the scenario is that it will lead to a buyout. To sum it all up, the three-time NBA champion's next stop may only come in full circle by then. The question now is which team will take him in.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Los Angeles teams are likely to scamper and get the 2015 NBA Finals MVP. This is unless some other team trades for him before the February trade deadline. But it appears no team is willing, meaning Memphis will have to wait it out.

Even at his age, there is no question that Iguodala can still be of help to any team. He is a good wing defender and can help out offensively if needed. But for the Clippers and the Lakers, they need someone to anchor on the defensive end. Both have enough offensive artillery following key acquisitions last summer.

NBC Sports bats that any trade for Iguodala may not happen before Dec. 15. The logical date is before the Feb. 6 deadline. Until that time, it will be interesting what the Grizzlies will do with Iguodala. Will he suit up?

For now, the Grizzlies have become lenient in handling the case of Iguodala. The 9th overall pick of the 2004 NBA Draft is working out independently to keep himself in shape. It remains to be seen if he will sit out or play for the Grizzlies when the regular season opens. The Grizzlies will open their campaign at the American Airlines Arena against the Miami Heat on Oct. 23.
