Warriors reach agreement with Utah
Via Adrian Wojnarowski's twitter, the Warriors have sent Richard Jefferson and Andris Beidrins to the Jazz. More Details to come, but as a Warriors fan, I'm glad we've held on to Bogut, Barnes, and Thompson so far.
Woj is reporting Iggy signed 4 years/48 mil with the warriors, can't see you keeping Barnes now
So if the warriors are keeping bogut is this a play to get igoudala or Dwight?
what are the details of the deal, what does Utah give up?
WTH? There better be some firsts going back Utah's way. How else could they convince them to take on that garbage?
Yeah definitely...at least their contracts are expiring after this year
I could be wrong. But i believe both players have expiring deals after this upcoming season. So it will give the Jazz plenty of cap to resign Hayward and Favors next season. Also it gives the team some veteran leadership in the locker room.
Neither Jefferson nor Biedrins are leaders. Utah did this deal to meet payroll minimum without giving up LT capspace. They should still get some other assets in return though.
Nice to find takers for them in spot location. Frees up a lot of cap room to go after a big fish.
"Golden State is sending multiple draft picks to Utah to unload the $24 million, including 2014 first-rounder, sources tell Y!" Adrian Wojnarowski twitter
Brandon rush was also in the deal.... I hope the warriors resign jarret jack with the extra cap space
The Warriors have agreed to sign unrestricted free agent guard/forward Andre Iguodala to a multi-year contract, according to multiple reports.
Yahoo! Sports reports that Iguodala will receive a four-year, $48 million deal from Golden State. USA Today Sports confirms the terms.
“It’s a great opportunity,” Iguodala told NBA.com. “I’m trying to win a championship.”
To make way for Iguodala’s arrival, the Warriors will trade reserve forward Richard Jefferson and reserve center Andris Biedrins to the Jazz, according to NBA.com and the San Jose Mercury News. The Mercury News and CBSSports.com reported that forward Brandon Rush was also headed to the Jazz. Yahoo! Sports reports that Utah will receive “multiple draft picks,” including a first-round pick in 2014, in exchange for taking on the contracts.
The free-agent negotiating period opened on Monday. Contracts can’t officially be signed and trades can’t officially be consummated until July 10.
Iguodala’s departure continues a summer of massive change in Denver: 2013 Coach of the Year George Karl was fired and 2013 Executive of the Year Masai Ujiri left for the Raptors.
In recent weeks, Golden State had been seen as one of five suitors for Lakers free-agent center Dwight Howard — along with the Lakers, Rockets, Mavericks and Hawks — but dumping the expiring contracts of Jefferson and Biedrins will complicate potential sign-and-trade scenarios.
Iguodala, 29, averaged 13 points, 5.3 rebounds, 5.4 assists and 1.7 steals last season. He reportedly received a four-year, $50+ million offer from the Kings earlier this week, only to have it yanked hours later.
Jefferson, 33, averaged 3.1 points and 1.5 rebounds in 56 appearances last season. He is entering the final season of a contract that will pay him $11 million.
Biedrins, 27, averaged 0.5 points and 2.9 rebounds per game in 53 appearances last season. He is entering the final season of a contract that will pay him $9 million.
Rush, 27, holds career averages of 9.1 points and 3.6 rebounds over five seasons with the Pacers and Warriors. He played just two games last year due to a season-ending knee injury. He is entering the final season of a contract that will pay him $24 million.
The Warriors eliminated the Nuggets in the first round of the 2013 Western Conference playoffs.
Do they keep Barnes?
I am just so curious to know what Dwight told Goldsen State
