The Golden State Warriors were busy this week trying to win the Dwight Howard sweepstakes, but Howard wasn’t the only marquee free agent they were convincing to come to the Bay Area. The Warriors have signed Andre Iguodala to a four-year, $48 million contract, according to Yahoo! Sports.

The signing of the former University of Arizona standout doesn’t necessarily eliminate the Warriors from winning...
