Andre Iguodala has the opportunity to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, and it's an avenue he'll likely explore.
According to Chris Tomasson of Fox Sports, Iguodala is leaning toward opting out of his contract upon season's end and makes no guarantees about returning to the Denver Nuggets.
To be fair, Iggy hasn't ruled out re-signing in Denver either. He has helped the Nuggets deliver a thrilling season. They currently have sole possession of third place in the Western Conference, and their 15-game winning streak stands as the third-longest of the season.
Still, at 29, opting out of his current deal and securing a long-term contract makes sense for the veteran.
Does it make sense for the Nuggets to sign him to that pact? And if it does, will they be willing to line his pockets with the same wads of cash that other factions will?
Iguodala has proved to be a sensational fit in Denver, and in a less-than-exuberant free-agent pool, his versatility is bound to top many a wish list.
