01:29 PM ET 06.08 | The Nuggets have already had quite the whirlwind offseason with the firing of George Karl and the loss of general manager Masai Ujiri to Toronto. Denver could lose another big name in the coming months if Andre Iguodala decides to opt out of the final year of his contract and test free agency. Iguodala could make over $16 million in Denver next season, but he may want to look for a long-term contract elsewhere if he doesn't feel the Nuggets will pony up enough money for his next contract. However, Nuggets president Josh Kroenke says that Iguodala is a big part of the team's future and hopes to keep him around. "I didn't bring Andre Iguodala to Denver to be here for one year. And that's what I've told him. I think he's a vital piece on a championship contending team. There are only a few true number ones around the NBA. And those guys don't grow on trees, so Andre is a vital piece to a championship contending team."

Laughed when I read how he felt about Iggy and his 60% foul shooting. Fired? I wish but his pops owns the team and the arena. But we can hope.

At the end of the day, Denver cannot lose Iguodala and get better. On the other hand, Andre should be looking past the money at what he may be able to accomplish elsewhere. Think of Iguodala in OKC.
