NBA free agency: Andre Iguodala, Warriors agree to 4-year contract

Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

The defensive ace is leaving Denver for Golden State, agreeing to a four-year, $48 million contract.

Andre Iguodalahas agreed to sign a four-year, $48 million contract with the Golden State Warriors, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports. The move was made possible after the Warriors created cap space by trading the contracts of Richard Jefferson and Andris Biedrins to the Utah Jazz.

Iguodala was one of the most coveted free agents of this year's class largely because the nine-year veteran is considered one of the premier defensive wing players in the NBA. Igoudala averaged 13 points, 5.3 rebounds and 5.4 assists last season during his lone campaign as a member of the Denver Nuggets.

The Warriors are also rumored to be hot after the biggest free agent of them all, Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard. There have been rumors about a possible sign-and-trade deal involving sending one or both of Klay Thompson and Harrison Barnes to the Lakers in exchange for Howard, though Howard's free agency decision remains a mystery.
