NBA Free Agency: Detroit Pistons Target Andre Igudala

The Detroit Pistons have over 20 millions in cap space to spend in free agency and it is likely they will spend it on the small forward position. As reported by David Aldrige the Detroit Pistons may in contention for free agent shooting guard Andre Iguodala. The Pistons would sign him to fill scoring void at the small forward position.

The 29-year-old Iguodala opted out of his contract with the Denver Nuggets to determine if he would like to stay in Denver after the abrupt firing of George Karl, the NBA’s coach of the year. The Nuggets will likely try to retain the services of Iguodala who seemed to soften his stance on the Nuggets after the hiring of long time assistant Brian Shaw.

Andre Iguodala averaged 13 points and 5 rebounds in 80 games for the Denver Nuggets last year.  He also managed 5 assists from the shooting guard position in 2013.

The Pistons have a connection with Iguodala on the coaching staff.  He played for Maurice Cheeks while in Philadelphia and it is said they have a  good relationship. Whether that will be enough to lure Iguodala to the Pistons is not certain. What is certain is that it will likely take a max deal get Andre to sign on the dotted line.
