According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, forward Andre Iguodala, who averaged 13 points, 5.4 assists and 5.3 rebounds per game for the Nuggets this season, has decided to opt out of the final year of his contract worth $15.9 million and become a free agent.
Denver Nuggets forward Andre Iguodala has decided to opt out of the final year of his contract and enter free agency, Yahoo! Sports has learned.
Iguodala will bypass the $15.9 million owed him next season and will be eligible to sign a new four-year deal elsewhere or sign an extension up to five years with the Nuggets.
Iguodala has until June 25 to exercise the early termination clause on his contract, and virtually all players wait until the deadline to file the necessary paperwork. Without triggering the opt-out cause, Iguodala could only sign a three-year extension with Denver.
After superstars Dwight Howard and Chris Paul, Iguodala will be a target for several teams, including the Atlanta Hawks, Cleveland Cavaliers,Dallas Mavericks, Houston Rockets, Detroit Pistons and New Orleans Pelicans, league sources said.
