NBA Trade Rumors: Andre Iguodala Will Stay With 76ers, According To Report

The Philadelphia 76ers are making a playoff push, and they will do it on the shoulders of Andre Iguodala. The small forward was definitely involved in trade rumors earlier in the season, but with the 76ers playing better, he will stay with the team past the trade deadline, according to CBS Sports' Ken Berger.

Sixers had been widely shopping Iguodala, but with recent winning ways, he's off the market, sources say. #NBA #tradedeadline

The 76ers' earlier desire to move Iguodala was mostly due to his hefty price tag. He has three years and $44 million remaining on his contract after this season, which is a lot for a player many feel is best as a role player on a very good team. The 76ers, though, have played better since he returned from injury earlier in the year and now sit in seventh place in the Eastern Conference with a young core that has some upside. 

The 76ers are likely to stay quiet as the trade deadline approaches, though they may make a minor move involving the expiring contracts of Jason Kapono and Darius Songaila.
