Andre Iguodala is due $15.9 million next season, but he’ll likely opt out of his contract with Denver following the season. It’s unlikely Iguodala will get that kind of money elsewhere next season, but the eight-year-veteran is looking for long-term security, which he can get if he becomes a free agent and signs a multi-year deal with the Nuggets or another team.
According to Chris Tomasson, Fox Sports Florida:
“Yeah, definitely,’’ Iguodala, 29, said of that being a distinct possibility. “You got to weigh options. Security-wise, a player would opt out, especially with the type of season we’ve had as a team. Teams know what I can bring to them, and I know (the Nuggets) know what I can bring to a team here.
“Players get like $50, $60 or $70 or $80 (million over multiple years), whatever the number was, they gave up a big number (in an option season by opting out). But in the grand scheme of things, pretty much get it back. You got security.’’
