Andre Iguodala is more concerned about where he will play next with the 2019-20 season underway. But looking ahead, there are suggestions that the 35-year-old will have a fitting retirement by next season - with the Dubs. 

Marc Stein of the New York Times said this in a newsletter released recently. He termed the move as a "virtual lock" and the whole thing makes sense. Iguodala was a vital cog in the three NBA title runs of the Warriors and it seems fitting he retires in style.

In the meantime, the question is which team will pick him up for the current NBA season. Memphis has yet to strike a deal with other teams. Most feel that a buyout will happen. Should this be the case, the Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers are seen as teams who will go after him. Much of this was discussed in a previous post.

There is a possibility that more teams could come into the picture. For the Lakers, they are reportedly seriously looking into J.R. Smith. Unless they play better against the Utah Jazz this Friday, there is a possibility that they may tap Smith.

Should this happen, the Clippers would be the lone player in the market waiting for Iguodala. The Houston Rockets expressed interest but begged off due to luxury tax woes. He is due $17.8 million this NBA season before becoming a free agent next summer.

It would have made sense to see Iguodala return to the Warriors. Under NBA rules, a player cannot return to the same team during the season where he was traded. Hence, the three-time NBA champion will have to make a temporary stop before returning to the Bay Area.

Despite his age, Iguodala can still be a gem off the bench. The Lakers could have put him to good use on opening night. LeBron James and Anthony Davis need more support in scoring, something that the 2018 NBA Final MVP can do.  Aside from that, he can get the job done on the defensive side as well. Having said all that, there seems to be little reason not to see Iggy back on the basketball court.
