1. Andre Iguodala, Miami Heat
Iguodala has a $15 million club option for next year, but considering that his best days might be behind him, the Heat might be inclined to let him go instead of retaining him for that absurd price. And if he hits the open market, he could reunite with a former Golden State teammate in Durant.
The three-time champ traded in gaudy stats from his Philadelphia days in order to become a versatile switchblade on the defensive end still capable of some emphatic dunks for a contender. Brooklyn has plenty of wing scoring talent with Durant and Harden, but Iguodala could provide the slight edge they need.
Andre Iguodala would be a tremendous veteran presence for the Nets.
Everywhere Iguodala seems to go, victories follow. Even though he was far from the top scoring option on that Miami team that shocked the world last year, his ability to provide stability and defense on an inexperienced team helped them pull off several upsets. Brooklyn has more experience, but Iguodala’s presence would still be welcomed.
The addition of another former Durant teammate in Jeff Green, along with all of his shooting, tenacity, and leadership ability, last year worked wonders for this squad. Iguodala could be looking to slip another ring on his finger, and the Nets might give him the best chance to do so.
