Even though Andre Iguodala has been the best player for the Philadelphia 76ers for the last few years, it would be in the best interest of both parties to part ways.
Right now, Iguodala is under a contract that pays him $80 million over six years. He has already served three years under that contract but is still scheduled to make some serious cash.
He's currently the fifth highest paid small forward in the NBA, making as much money as Kevin Durant and more than Manu Ginobili.
Iguodala has been good but not that good.
Not only is he a little overpaid, but he's on a team that probably won't be able to contend with the Miami Heat, Boston Celtics or Chicago Bulls with the players currently on the roster.
For the Sixers, trading Iggy to a contender would not only allow him to have a better chance to win but in the long run would give the team the best chance to win.
Jrue Holliday and Evan Turner are a solid, young base for Philly, but they need some more talent around them in order to be competitive in the Eastern Conference.
By trading Iguodala, the Sixers could add some up and coming young talent and in a couple of years the team could develop into a serious contender.
