Golden State Warriors Make Great Addition After Agreeing to Four-Year Deal With Andre Iguodala

Andre Igoudala

(Chris Humphreys/USA Today Sports)

It’s been an interesting offseason in the NBA since teams were allowed to begin talks with free agents and now–it looks like Andre Iguodala has found a new home for the 2013-14 season.

Iguodala agreed to a four-year, $48 million deal with the Golden State Warriors on Friday–which is an interesting move considering all of the talks surrounding the team’s attempt to land Dwight Howard as well. There were talks on Friday how the Warriors were in talks with teams about possible trades to clear some cap space to possibly make room for Howard, but it looks like the addition of Iguodala has ruined any chance of that happening.

Regardless, this is a great move for a Warriors team that was one of the biggest surprises in the league last year.

Golden State was already loaded with plenty of young talent and even came close to upsetting the San Antonio Spurs in the semifinals of the 2013 NBA playoffs. Now, the addition of Iguodala gives Stephen Curry and company one of the league’s top defenders–which is huge for a team that has the potential to be one of the top teams in the Western Conference next year.

It’s amazing how quickly things can change in free agency considering Igoudala seemed to be on his way to the Sacramento Kings a couple of days ago before the team pulled the offer off the table at the last second. As big as the addition of Igoudala is, just imagine how stacked this team could have been if they managed a way to land Howard as well.

Still, even without Howard–look out for the Warriors once again in the Western Conference now that Iguodala is officially on board.

Stephen Curry Puts On A Clinic Against Spurs

NBA fans and media alike were incredibly excited for the first meeting of the San Antonio Spurs and Golden State Warriors this season, and many expected an uber-competitive game to take place on Monday night. Well, the game was enthralling, but not very competitive. Stephen Curry put on a clinic, and was dribbling circles around the Spurs throughout. Here's some evidence. If that floater wasn't epic enough, in the second-half Curry added this drive in which he pulled the magic out on Jonathon Simmons.
