Several Teams, Players Found New Method to Beat Golden State Warriors

Andre Iguodala of the Golden State Warriors celebrates after defeating the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2017 NBA Finals

The NBA Finals MVP decided last week to decline his $27.7 million player option for 2017-18 to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1 before re-upping with the Warriors.

Golden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala is partnering with startup streaming news network Cheddar to launch a variety show titled Evenings With Andre.

One of the main components helping the Golden State Warriors achieve success has been Andre Iguodala.

"Look for (Durant) to sign later in the month", one source said this week.

Don't expect Kevin Durant to re-sign soon after free agency opens.

Euro rallies, weak dollar lifts oil
It went as high as US$0.7624 on Tuesday but once again failed to breach key chart resistance of US$0.7636. The consumer discretionary index rose 0.9 percent, helped by a gain in Walt Disney, Comcast and Amazon.

The NBA free agency period will begin Saturday, meaning players can reach verbal agreements with teams at that time. It is anticipated that he could command a salary of at least $10 million and up to $12 million per season.

Losing him would be a significant blow to Golden State.

It remains to be seen how much less Durant will take next season than the estimated max he's entitled to score in the $35 million range.

Haynes reported Tuesday that numerous teams are already plotting to try to sign Iguodala away from the Warriors. He has been the sixth man but was so darn good he won the 2015 Finals MVP. It is not yet known if Iguodala will take meetings.

The Warriors would have to use salary-cap space to sign Durant to a similar deal in July, which would nearly certainly prevent them from re-signing Iguodala or Livingston. With two superstars to extend, two very key role players that need to be persuaded to re-sign, and a whole host of veterans whose deals will expire, money and timing will be key for Bob Myers and company. The New York Knicks have "legitimate" interest in re-signing free agent point guard Derrick Rose , league sources familiar with the matter told ESPN's Ian Begley.
