Andre Iguodala will remain with the Memphis Grizzlies for now, with the team declining to consider a buyout that would allow him to join a contender, The Athletic's Shams Charania reported Tuesday.
Sources: Memphis wants three-time champion Andre Iguodala to report to training camp and is refusing right now to engage in buyout, which would prevent Iguodala from finishing a Hall of Fame career on his terms because this may be his final NBA season.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) September 9, 2019
The Golden State Warriors traded Iguodala and a 2024 first-round pick to the Grizzlies on July 7 in a salary dump, estimated to be slightly more than $17 million for this season.
Iguodala, 35, averaged a career-low 5.7 points per game last season, his 15th in the NBA. Before that he served as a key cog in the Warriors' three championship runs, including his Finals MVP performance against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2015.
