Golden State Warriors
The Warriors’ free agency options were looking bleak based on the salary cap once the Andre Iguodala acquisition would go through, but Golden State has reportedly worked the phones once again to maneuver itself into a more flexible salary cap situation.
First, what they’re in the works of completing—a three-team deal involving the Nuggets for Iguodala, as first reported by, who else, Adrian Wojnarowski in the middle of the night:
In the deal, which could be finalized on Monday, Denver would sign-and-trade forward Andre Iguodala to Golden State for the four-year, $48 million contract he had agreed to sign with the Warriors. This would create a $12 million trade exception that the Nuggets would have a full year to use before it expires.
Utah would sign-and-trade [Randy] Foye to Denver on a three-year, $9 million deal, with a team option on the third season, sources said. [...] Golden State would send Utah a future second-round pick for its role in facilitating the deal.
