    LA Clippers Rumors: Andre Iguodala to join team

    by Ryan Snellings

    According to a recent rumor by ClipCast, former NBA Finals MVP Andre Iguodala will be joining the LA Clippers in the next week.
    The former Finals MVP is reportedly on the way to the LA Clippers. This rumor came out last night via ClipCast. According to the two hosts, a source close to Andre Iguodala informed them that he will join the team on September 3. Why such a specific date? They have no clue. You can listen to the podcast in the link below.

    https://clipperholics.com/2019/08/29/la-clippers-rumors-andre-iguodala-join-team/

    Now, we here at Clipperholics are skeptical of the rumor. For starters, no source is given. Obviously I don’t expect them to hand out their sources, but there’s just zero concrete evidence. The hosts do tell us that the news is not coming from anyone in the Clipper organization, noting just how tight lipped the front office has been.

    They also mention that their source did not provide any details on how Iggy would join the team, whether it be via a buyout with Memphis or some sort of trade.

    It is worth noting though that ClipCast has reported rumors that ended up being true in the past, such as Ballmer’s desire to move out of Staples. Take that how you will.

    If true, Iguodala would add yet another versatile veteran defender to the Clippers’ roster. He also offers yet another strong veteran presence who can play big minutes on certain nights if the Clips decide to rest one or both of Kawhi Leonard and Paul George.

    The 35-year-old has a little left in the tank after being a key piece in the Golden State Warriors’ last few championship runs. Last season he appeared in 68 games for the Dubs, putting up 5.7 points on 50% shooting from the field (33.3% from deep). He also added in 3.2 assists, 3.7 rebounds and 0.9 steals per game.

    The thought of a defensive lineup featuring Patrick Beverley, George, Leonard, Iguodala and Montrezl Harrell is extremely enticing. The group would be the most fearsome defensive minded squad in the league, while still being pretty darn threatening on offense.

    This rumor is worth watching, especially since they gave us a date. Keep checking back here for any and all updates related to your LA Clippers!

    Wow, these people can predict the future? Maybe they can help me with sports betting. Sounds like Burt Steele is their source. Guess what day September 3rd is? I will believe this when I see it.

    The Clippers make a lot of sense and I wouldn’t be surprised if he went to LA over Houston.

    They are actually calling a date -- next Tuesday. Bold move of the part of those ClipCast podcasters.

    @The Cat ... do you have any experience with ClipCast (Chris Wylde and Mike Jaglin), and whether they repeat sourced-rumors much?

    Thanks for the heads up. He's washed up though. Unless George or Leonard are going to be playing PF or SG, what is he going to be 3 string? Which I guess would be perfect for him and Clippers because he wont be guarding the other two star forwards unless in practice. Leaves more energy for Leonard and George to produce offensively and Iggy to focus on defense.

    You can go ahead and hand the Clippers the trophy if this happens. Elite playoff defense and they’ll have a damn good offense as well.

    This sucks, man. Rockets can’t catch a f***ing break. We hold off signing real players “to be competitive in the buyout market”, and then this happens. Sad...

    It's not surprising players go other places besides Houston. It happens A LOT. Player have to be kidnapped and smuggled to Houston before realizing Houston is a good place to play.

    Why would he come here? We won't pay him if he plays good. Also the fans here will be ready to get rid of his "cheap contract" more than watch him help us win

    Ok dumbass. How does this have to do with money? Rockets are not giving Memphis a #1 pick for Iggy. That would be idiotic.
