Iguodala Agrees With Warriors as Howard Eliminated, Yahoo! Says

July 6 (Bloomberg) -- Free-agent guard Andre Iguodala has agreed on a four-year, $48 million contract with the Golden State Warriors, Yahoo Sports reported, citing an unidentified person familiar with the deal.

The impact on the salary cap from Iguodala’s deal effectively removes Golden State from the list of possible destinations for center Dwight Howard, the offseason’s highest-profile free agent, Yahoo said yesterday. Howard is choosing among the Los Angeles Lakers, where he played last season; the Warriors; the Dallas Mavericks; the Houston Rockets, and the Atlanta Hawks, according to ESPN.

A National Basketball Association All-Star in 2012, Iguodala averaged 13 points per game last season as a member of the Denver Nuggets. Prior to joining Denver, he spent eight years with the Philadelphia 76ers.

Iguodala, who also plays forward, would join a team that advanced this season to the second round of the NBA playoffs for the first time in six years. The team was led by guards Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, who combined for 39.5 points per game.

NBA signings and trades can’t be finished and formally announced until July 10.
