NBA free agency rumors: Rockets interested in Andre Iguodala if buyout occurs

NBA free agency rumors: Rockets interested in Andre Iguodala if buyout occurs

With Jimmy Butler reportedly still working on the sign-and-trade that will send him to the Miami Heat, the Houston Rockets must move on the Plan B.

They have little salary-cap space and some chemistry issues, so where could Rockets general manager Daryl Morey look to bolster his roster? He might have to look no further than his rivals.

After the Warriors reportedly traded Andre Iguodala to the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday, ESPN's Tim MacMahon reported the Rockets would be interested in signing the 2015 NBA Finals MVP should Memphis buy out his contract.

That would be a hard pill for Warriors fans to swallow.

It's no coincidence that NBA titles followed Iguodala's arrival to the Warriors. While their decision to move on from the 35-year-old  was necessary in order for the team to get younger, Iguodala leaves the Warriors a Bay Area legend, a fan favorite and someone it would hurt to see suiting up with James Harden and Chris Paul.

If the Grizzlies do decide to cut Iguodala loose, there should be no shortage of suitors for the veteran swingman, including the Lakers, who are run by his old agent, Rob Pelinka.

The Rockets reportedly re-signed guard Austin Rivers, but adding Iguodala would give them some depth they lacked this past season.

For now, Iguodala is a member of the rebuilding Grizzlies, but that could quickly change.

Warriors' Draymond Green reveals desire to retire from NBA in 10 years

Warriors' Draymond Green reveals desire to retire from NBA in 10 years

For Warriors star Draymond Green, this offseason has been all about the Benjamins.

First, Green agreed to a four-year, $100 million contract extension with Golden State, keeping the three-time All-Star from potentially entering free agency in 2020.

Then last week, one of Green’s first investments -- Smile Direct Club -- went public on the stock market and went from a $150 million valuation to a $9 billion valuation. Draymond told Forbes that his investment is now worth 40 times what it was initially.

Green was recently asked about his future plans after basketball, and the 29-year-old has no desire to slow down his money-making moves.

“Ten years from now I'd like to be retired from the NBA, engaged in a number of business ventures,” Green told Inc.com. “And well on my way to my goal of becoming a billionaire.”

Even with seven NBA seasons under his belt, Green has played an average of almost 94 games a year, including both the regular-season and postseason play. At that rate, he would end up amassing 1,593 games played for his career if he played 10 more NBA seasons, placing him second on the NBA’s all-time games played list behind Robert Parish. 

However, Green lost over 20 pounds during the 2018-19 season and took his game to a new level in the postseason, and with today’s modern technology, players are staying fresh longer than ever before. 

I mean Vince Carter is still lacing up his sneakers next to players who weren’t even born when the 42-year-old made his NBA debut.

We’ll see if Green can parlay his very successful offseason into his on the court play when the Warriors open up the preseason on Oct. 5 at Chase Center against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Until then, keep cashing those checks, Dray.

Watch Warriors star Steph Curry's dance moves at brother Seth's wedding

Every Warriors fan has seen a Steph Curry shimmy.

When the two-time NBA MVP hits a big shot, the shimmy comes out. It's a move Warriors fans love and other teams hate. 

There's no hating on Steph's latest dance moves, though. The Warriors' star point guard was on Cloud Nine and showing off his dance moves over the weekend while younger brother Seth got married in Malibu. 

The Curry brothers took center stage during the playoffs last season when the Warriors and Trail Blazers faced off in the Western Conference finals. Seth scored 6.3 points per game off the bench and then signed a four-year, $32 million contract with the Mavericks this offseason.

The younger Curry brother married Callie Rivers, the daughter of Clippers coach Doc Rivers. There could be some real competitive H-O-R-S-E games at holidays between these families in the future.
