Report: Andre Iguodala Returns to the Golden State Warriors

Andre Iguodala, the 2015 NBA Finals MVP with the Golden State Warriors, has decided to reunite with his old team - where he won three NBA Championships in 2015, 2017 and 2018. 
Iguodala had spent the last two seasons with the Miami Heat, helping the team into the NBA Finals in the bubble during the 2019-20 season. Iguodala spoke about the fact that he will more than likely end his career in the Bay Area with this latest contract saying:
Who would have thought I’d have the opportunity to go back to the place where I was able to have, whatever you want to call it, legacy years, in terms of the accomplishments, winning multiple championships, the relationships that I was able to build with some of my closest friends and teammates? The relationship with the fans, the relationship with the Bay, the opportunity to end it here, was just something special.
Iguodala brings extensive experience back to the Warriors, and will be another veteran voice in the locker room to help aid the growth and development of youngsters like James Wiseman, Golden State's second overall pick from last year's NBA Draft. Through seventeen seasons, Iggy has played in 1,192 games, as well as 170 more playoff games. 

Iguodala is also interesting in his growth off the court - he created the NBA Players Technology Summit, aimed at bringing players, investors and the tech world closer together. He has been able to accomplish his mission, as the portfolio has expanded to 71 investments, 12 exits and a 70% return since 2014. He said, "historically, we’re taught to stay in a certain lane and this lane, we’ve never had access to and now we’re taking the reins and we’re running with it."

Signing for the league veteran minimum, this is a solid move for the Warriors not only on the court, but off it as well.
