On Sunday night, the Warriors reportedly agreed to trade Andre Iguodala to the Grizzlies.
On Wednesday night, we learned that Memphis is looking to trade the 2015 NBA Finals MVP.
ESPN's Tim MacMahon has the details:
Filed to ESPN: The Grizzlies do not plan to give Andre Iguodala a buyout before the season and are actively exploring the trade market for the former Finals MVP, per league sources. Rockets, Mavs among teams with interest.— Tim MacMahon (@espn_macmahon) July 4, 2019
During his radio show on Monday, ESPN's Stephen A. Smith said the following:
"He has basically -- according to sources -- informed everybody he's going to work out a buyout and then go to the Lakers.
"So Andre Iguodala is planning on joining the Lakers from what we're being told. I don't know how true that is, whether or not it is going to definitively happen.
"But that is the plan at this particular moment in time."
The problem for Iguodala is that the Grizzlies are in "asset acquisition mode" and absolutely can get something of value in return by trading the 35-year-old.
Remember, Memphis also received a 2024 first-round pick (Top-4 protected) from the Dubs, and could end up getting another future pick if they flip Iguodala.
Golden State is trading Andre Iguodala to the Memphis Grizzlies, league source tells ESPN. Warriors are sending a 2024 protected first-round pick in the 2024 (protected 1-4), 2025 (protected 1) and 2026 unprotected.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) July 1, 2019
Although it sounds like the 15-year veteran won't be able to choose his next team, he does have this going for him:

It's going to be fascinating to see where Iguodala ends up.
