Speaking on Ebro in the Morning, Iguodala explained how he feels about the whole situation as someone who saw it unfold from the sidelines. “It was interesting, because if you keep up with the tech space you see this all the time,” he said at the 10:30 point of the interview.

Miami has earned the benefit of the doubt. It will have a stout, switchable defense even with Tucker gone. (The Heat have interest in Jae Crowder too, sources say, but finding matching salary is tough until Dewayne Dedmon, Caleb Martin and Victor Oladipo become trade-eligible in the winter. Martin might start, and the Heat are optimistic Oladipo can play a huge role.)
