• Golden State Warriors are dealing with injuries to their stars Steph Curry and Klay Thompson
  • They lost Kevin Durant in free agency this season
  • D’Angelo Russell has been averaging 23.2 points a game to lead the Warriors in offense

The Golden State Warriors are far from their championship form this season compared to the team that went on to the NBA finals just last year. With their main guns in the sickbay, the Warriors might just reclaim one of the integral pieces of their championship run.

Reports from Anthony Slater of the The Athletic said that Golden State and former Finals MVP Andre Iguodala appear to have a mutual agreement of having a reunion in the Bay Area. Iguodala played six seasons with the Warriors before he got traded to the Memphis Grizzlies before the start of the current season.

Iggy is “deeply connected to the people in the organization who matter”, obviously referring to the Warriors, where he won all of his three championships with – the first one with him being named the most outstanding player in the championship series.

Iguodala, the former Philadelphia first-round pick in 2004 NBA Draft, still lives in San Francisco and is still deeply connected with the team as a whole – and that alone could be a factor of making the 35-year old wear yellow and blue again. “There’s no title to be won. But mutual interest remains in a reunion this summer,” said Slater via ClutchPoints report.

Several reports have been circulating that Iguodala sees both Los Angeles rivals – Lakers and Clippers – as well as the Dallas Mavericks as the favorites to get the services of the former All-Star, but none of them are making any moves, as of now, to acquire Iggy. Memphis, his current team, is reportedly looking to trade him in exchange for a first-round pick for him but there’s no news about the transaction.

Golden State is trying to endure this season while missing the services of their stars Stephen Curry due to a broken hand, Klay Thompson as he still recovering from an ACL injury he got last season, and, at times, Draymond Green who’s had his share of injuries this season. Performances by D’Angelo Russell and rookie Eric Paschall are keeping the team afloat but still in need of more support.
