05:37 PM ET 06.14 | As expected Andre Iguodala has opted out of the final year of his contract with the Denver Nuggets. Iguodala was acquired last Summer after the Nuggets sent Arron Afflalo to the Orlando Magic. He is leaving a guaranteed $16.1 million on the table to test free agency but will look to sign a long-term deal while still in the prime of his career. Iguodala is a premium wing defender and teams have gone out of their way to have cap space this Summer for other key free agents like Chris Paul and Dwight Howard. In short, teams will have money to spend, and Iguodala's versatile offensive skill set and defensive ability will make him an attractive target for teams across the league.

AI 2.0 is a complimentary player who may not find a $16m/year gig unless it's a bottom feeder. He is a 3rd option on a contender.

A.I is not a superstar but he will be good on any team. Lets not forget he was Philly's top scorer for a few years until they asked him to take a lesser role so the youngsterscould develop. I doubt anyone pays him 16 mil. He will fit in wherever he goes. He is a team first guy that is probably not great at anything but very good at a few things.
