01:49 PM ET 03.31 | Denver Nuggets guard Andre Iguodala is a perfect fit for the team's offense and he gives them the top level defender that they need. While Iguodala is key to getting the Nuggets to reach their ultimate goal, the team will have to open up the checkbook if they plan to keep the star guard on their roster for the next few years. Iguodala is set to make $16.1 million next season, but he plans on making a lot more after opting out of his current contract with the team.

Pure example of greed right here. 16 million for a year is not enough ?Really ? The Nuggets have a by CouponDropDown">good thing going, and it would be great to see Andre stick with them for a couple more years.

Well the hawks,mavs,jazz,cavs,hornets can all offer him a contract too.
But I agree resigning with Denver makes sense for Iggy.

Dude is going to be 30 , no team will approach his last contractHe will be making 16 mil next year.......He likely won't make that in TWO more years, going forwards.Dumb move if he does

As you stated in your previous post, NBA GMs aren't the brightest...someone will give him the $$ and overpay. He is a good 3rd piece on a winning team, you CANNOT build your franchise around him and he is not "Robin" to a "Batman" either...not worth a big contract. IMO

QUOTE(#11):

would you want him at that price on your team?also - remember, this isn't a guy thats been lighting it up, he has been in the 12 pt per game range the last couple years. I agree he is a valuable guy, defensively....but who pays a defensive guy 10+ mil per after age 30?

He is a great team player and fits the Run and Defend game of the Nuggets, but if he wants more than $16M, he's walking and Brewer gets starting minutes. Brewer isn't better (usually), but he doesn't break the bank.

$40-45 million for 5 years could work for my team. That's less then $9 million per year. He is a good 2nd or 3rd option. Those are not max money. He is for sure not worth max money...

He's worth whatever the market will bear. If someone will pay top buck, thats exactly where he should go.

And ultimately where he will go, which will probably be a bad team....then 5 years from now we'll hear about how he wants to "join a contender" SMH

Iggy Pop showed in Philly that he's not a top scorer on a day in, and day out basis...
Over paying an inconsistant 30 year old top dollar would be dumb!
