NBA all-star Andre Iguodala is a multi-millionaire, but he has no objections to increasing taxes on the wealthy. In a recent episode of “Influencers with Andy Serwer,” Iguodala got behind proposals from from Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) to institute a wealth tax. “If we can find ways to stop abusing the earth with pollution and overeating and obesity and diseases and cancer, and if you have to take a chunk of my wealth, I’m all for it,” said Iguodala, a longtime forward for the Golden State Warriors who was acquired earlier this month by the Memphis Grizzlies.
Houston remains extremely interested in acquiring forward Andre Iguodala, per team sources. While the hope remained he would get a buyout, the team is exploring different scenarios to acquire Iguodala. The belief is Memphis wants at least first-round compensation for the former Finals MVP. The Rockets are also interested in younger players with athleticism, like David Nwaba, who recently signed a two-year deal with Brooklyn.
Storyline: Andre Iguodala Trade?

Rockets, Clippers targeting Andre Iguodala

Alas, Westbrook gets his new start with the team that sources say was his No. 1 option and the Rockets are now poised to make the sort of run that had begun to look so unlikely – especially if they can keep adding to the roster from here. Priority No. 1? Secure a deal for former Warriors sixth man Andre Iguodala, who was traded by the Warriors to Memphis on June 30 to make room for D’Angelo Russell in the Kevin Durant sign-and-trade with Brooklyn. The Rockets have continued their push to land the 35-year-old via trade, with the Clippers also known to be among the most serious suitors. They are also hoping to add veteran big man Tyson Chandler.

Iguodala is still a desired player, and given time to flush out a market, Golden State might have been able to trade him and get back some value and save money. But with no time and few options, the Grizzlies treated Iguodala like he was a toxic asset and made the Warriors give up a lightly protected 2024 first-round pick — when Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson might be out of their primes — plus $2 million in cash to take on the last year of the contact. When it was done, the Warriors had given up two first-round picks and $5.6 million in cash for the right to sign Russell — a player they might or might not even end up keeping long term — to a four-year, $117 million contract.
