Andre Iguodala: Opts Out Of Final Year Of Contract
Update: Iguodala has decided to opt out of the final year of his contract with the Nuggets and enter free agency, Yahoo! Sports reports.

Recommendation: Rather than playing out the final year of his contract with Denver, Iguodala has decided to opt out and seek a new, long-term deal as a free agent. He was set to earn $15.9 million next season, but he can now sign elsewhere for up to four years, or he can re-up with the Nuggets for five years. Nuggets CEO Josh Kroenke was clear that re-signing Iguodala is a "huge priority" for the team, and understandably so with the 29-year-old averaging 13.0 points, 5.3 rebounds and 5.4 assists during the regular season and leading his team to the playoffs. However, there will likely be plenty of teams vying for Iguodala's services.
