Golden State Warriors: Signing Andre Iguodala to Entice Dwight Howard

+Read full article

While the rest of the NBA world is waiting on a Twitter message from Dwight Howard on where he will play, the Golden State Warriors were clearing salary cap room to hopefully land a big-named free agent. After sending Richard Jefferson and Andris Biedrins to the Utah Jazz, the Warriors were able to clear enough space to sign one of those free agents. On Friday, the Warriors signed Andre Iguodala to a four-year deal worth $48 million.

Reports are still out there that the Warriors are still trying to clear cap space to try and sign Howard. Howard, who has yet to make a choice, was believed to be leaning towards the Houston Rockets or Dallas Mavericks. However, Warriors’ head coach Mark Jackson appeared to blow him away with the “sales pitch” the team threw at him. With the signing of Iguodala, the Warriors now have another piece to throw at Howard with regards to building a championship team.

Iguodala will join the likes of Stephen Curry and Andrew Bogut — a couple of guys that led the Warriors into the playoffs last season. Nobody knows what Howard will do, but could we possibly be seeing the makings of another Miami Heat situation where several top free agent players decide to join forces to try and win a championship.

Before the offseason, people had an idea something like that could happen, but nobody would have predicted this would happen in Golden State. Whether he signs with Golden State or not remains to be seen. Either way, the Warriors have proven they are trying to win, and they just might be adding the right pieces to do so.

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.
