The San Antonio Spurs and Andre Iguodala will speak as soon as NBA free agency begins on Saturday morning.
The San Antonio Spurs will march into NBA free agency at 12:01 a.m. ET on Saturday, July 1. They’ll look to add players to the roster, after selecting Derrick White and Jaron Blossomgame in the 2017 NBA Draft.
Earlier this week, Andre Iguodala drew the team’s interest. He’s one of many players set to hit free agency in just a few hours.
Well, the Spurs and Iguodala will waste no time in meeting with each other. According to ESPN’s Chris Haynes, these two sides will meet at midnight ET, just as free agency starts:

In an extended piece on ESPN.com, Haynes went into greater detail on the Spurs’ interest in Iguodala. The meeting between San Antonio and Iguodala will take place in Los Angeles, CA.
The Spurs also feel there’s a “legitimate shot” of them taking the 2015 NBA MVP from the Golden State Warriors. However, he’ll only leave “under the right parameters.”
To top it off, the Warriors and Iguodala have yet to schedule a free-agent meeting, but “could change any minute.” This is according to ESPN’s Zach Lowe.
As of now, the Warriors and Andre Iguodala have no meeting scheduled, sources say. Could change any minute. Sides are optimistic.

It seems the Spurs are trying to pluck talent from their Western Conference rival, who swept them in the Western Conference Finals. If so, the Warriors would lose a critical member of their team from the past four seasons, who helped them toward two NBA championships, the most recent being in 2017.
Through four seasons in Golden State, Iguodala averaged 7.9 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 3.5 assists in 27.9 minutes per game. He came over in the 2013 NBA offseason.
Iguodala could start at wing, next to Kawhi Leonard in the Spurs’ starting lineup. If not, he could fill a similar sixth-man role that he played with the Warriors. The former Philadelphia 76ers pick would be a jack-of-all-trades player for the team.
Should the Spurs sign Iguodala? If so, how long would his contract be?
