NBA Free Agency: Sacramento Kings Pull Back Monster Contract Offer to Andre Iguodala

In a shocking move, the Sacramento Kings have rescinded their monster contract offer to free agent forward Andre Iguodala and will no longer pursue him, according to USA Today’s Sam Amick. 

The deal was reportedly worth four years and $56 million.

According to Amick, the Kings wanted an “answer that Iguodala wasn’t ready to give, so they pulled out and moved on.”

Echoing that thought, Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski reports that “Iguodala wasn’t ready to tell the Kings ‘yes'” after the Denver Nuggets showed “no inclination” to match the Kings’ offer and re-sign Iguodala.

Iguodala is an unrestricted free agent after opting out of the final year of his contract with the Nuggets earlier this offseason.

He was obviously not very happy that the Kings pulled out of the deal, sending out two tweets below:

Now with the Kings reportedly out, Iguodala has plenty of other options to consider.

Other than the Kings and Nuggets, he spoke with four teams on Monday, talking to the Golden State Warriors, New Orleans Pelicans, Atlanta Hawks, and Detroit Pistons, who are really going after him hard.

Wojnarowski reports that it is “still very possible” that he will re-sign with Denver.

Iguodala averaged 13.0 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 5.4 assists with the Nuggets last season and has been one of the hottest commodities on the free agent market thus far.
