Would Philly bring back Andre Iguodala with open arms?



Former Sixer Andre Iguodala has decided to opt out of the final year of his contract with the Denver Nuggets. It's likely due to the firing of 2013 Coach of the year George Karl. It is the final year of the of six-year $80 million deal Iguodala signed in 2008. Now, it seems, that it would be a long shot, but Doug Collins and the front office saw a deal they couldn't refuse that looked so good, that they decided to to trade the rights to first round draft pick Mo Harkless, Andre Iguodala, and Nikola Vucevic for Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson.

While it's fair to say the Bynum part of the deal was a flat out failure, and the part for Richardson turned out to be okay at best. After all, he's only played 33 games this season. But would the Sixers even consider bringing him back? We already have a poor man's Iguodala in Evan Turner. They're not that different apart. They both play tight defense, they're average, and nothing special.

Though, it's doubtful such a move can be made because the Sixers only have $12 million dollars to work with come free agency, unless they move some contracts like Richardson and Turner and maybe even more. If they're going to make a move in free agency, then they may make one or two moves to make space to bring in a difference maker. They still don't even know what they're planning to do with Bynum, and free agency starts in July. It's doubtful this could happen because Iguodala is expecting a max contract and it's no way the Sixers would bring him back at an expensive price, but why bring him back at all? We something similar in Turner. Wouldn't make much sense right? Probably not, best time to move on and build for the future.
