To be clear, Andre Iguodala is playing much better than his statistics display. However, he is playing himself out of a max contract.
As of Feb. 24, Iguodala's shooting slash line sits at .445/.314/.588. That's 58.8 percent from the charity stripe, folks.
Furthermore, one has to wonder how much money the Denver Nuggets are willing to spend to re-sign the 29-year-old. They have limitless depth along the perimeter and are not quite as financially flexible as other teams on the market.
His recent struggles could help put a cap on what Denver offers.
To be fair, Iguodala is in his first year with a new team. Rather than having everything run through him, the former Arizona Wildcat is now a role player within a system of limitless depth.
Don't forget, though, Iguodala will turn 30 next season. While general managers respect Iguodala, the chances of his receiving a max contract have decreased.
With an improvement in his shooting percentages, Iguodala could be maxed out after all. Even if he doesn't improve, a max deal remains a possibility for a contender in need of an elite perimeter defender.
As it presently stands, however, Iguodala is playing his way out of the money he deserves.
