As part of the trade in the nets that sent Kevin Durant to Brooklyn and D & # 39; Angelo Russell to the Warriors, Andre Iguodala was traded to Memphis.
But as ESPN's Tim MacMahon reported last week:  Submitted by ESPN: The Grizzlies are not planning to buy Andre Iguodala ahead of the season, and are actively exploring the trading market for the former Final MVP, depending on the league. Rockets, Mavs among teams with interest.

Speaking of Mavs – They are reportedly discussing an Iguodala deal with Memphis. Mike Fisher of DallasBasketball.com has the details:

If you're a Warriors fan and hope that Iguodala will be back at the Dubs next season, you want him to go to Dallas.
Why? If the Mavs get out of action by the middle of February (which is very likely given the stacked Western Conference), they would tend to agree to a buyout with Iguodala.
In that case, he could sign with the Warriors for an expected playoff push.
Important reservations – a lot can change between now and then, and we do not know if this is what both sides want, and we do not know if the Warriors will be able to strike in light of their "severely handicapped" Situation:
Here's the math in Golden State.
Golden State is now $ 219,000 below the tax that takes into account today's two transactions by renouncing / extending Shaun Livingston and signing both second-round picks.
The squad will be 14 and GSW can not add another player.

And if you're wondering – if the Grizzlies make a buyout number 9 The CBA rules would keep Iguodala from signing with the dubs.
Ultimately, for an 2004 NBA Draft (which they do not do because they should be able to acquire an asset in a trade), the reunion of the Iguodala warriors will become a reality, so do not hold their breath.
