For the Kids: Will the Sixers Trade Andre Iguodala this Season?

Andre Iguodala has, thus far, performed out of his mind this season. While his assist numbers are down in part to Louis Williams distributing more, his shooting numbers are actually stabbing God in the ass they're so high compared to years past. But there's still a large segment of people who think the Sixers will be better off trading Iguodala now rather than later.

Currently kicking the tires on a longer post about this but I wanted to step aside first so you can have your fun. It's a question that has been asked since creation, churning butter and rumor mills for years on end, keeping us warm through the winter months. The Sixers well-paid wingman has two years and a player option left on his contract, during which the team will need to think about extensions for Jrue Holiday and Evan Turner. There are essentially two schools of thought as to why the Sixers should trade Iguodala, and they are on completely opposite ends of the spectrum. In the middle is the now-heavy majority of former flip-floppers claiming they would never trade him ever never ever.

There are millions of words to be spent on Iguodala but I'll save those for another day. I'll send you off with a reminder that he is one of, if not the, best wing defender in the world (and Team USA), despite important people voting disgustingly otherwise. With the team sitting at 10-3 but limited cap flexibility over the next year or two and a freshly signed Thaddeus Young, does Andre last the season? Should he? This is all you folks so bring your pickaxes because there are bound to be some ugly, statless opinions thrown around here and I don't want any of you to be unarmed.
