Detroit Pistons Want To Make Move For Andre Iguodala

+Read full article

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Pistons, when it comes to going after free agents, are expected to make certain moves. One target could be Andre Iguodala from the Denver Nuggets who is looking for a change of address.

He has eight years of experience. The Pistons can go only so far with promising 19, 20 or 21-year-old players who haven’t reached the level yet of playing with consistency and confidence. Iguodala could make the Pistons younger players so much better with his presence in the lineup.

He’s also a winner. Coming from a team that had an outstanding regular season would make Iguodala very valuable to a team like the Pistons, who have had losing records five straight seasons. The Pistons don’t have players that have performed for successful NBA teams. That’s another bonus that Iguodala would provide the franchise. In 80 regular-season games he averaged 34.7 minutes, 13 points, 5.4 assists and 5.3 points per game, while shooting 45.1 percent from the floor. For his career, he’s at 15.1 points, 4.9 assists and 5.8 rebounds a game. He’s been steady over the years with his production and that’s what the Pistons need.

If he’s in the Pistons lineup, Detroit would be a powerhouse inside with Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe joining forces with Iguodala.

Detroit has the bucks to pay for Iguodala, but it may take a lot of convincing on their part to prove to him that the Pistons have the type of team he needs. He definitely wants to play for a winner. But he might help the Pistons become one if he joins the team.
