Golden State Warriors wing Andre Iguodala will seriously consider overtures from other teams in free agency, according to Shams Charania of The Vertical.

This news comes just a few days after it was reported that Iguodala planned to re-sign with the Warriors on a multi-year deal worth $8-12 million annually.

Still, even though Iguodala plans to meet with other teams, Charania says those ballclubs would have to bring a vision to the table that shows they will be able to contend in order to pry Iguodala away from Golden State.

The Utah Jazz, Los Angeles Clippers, Chicago Bulls, Minnesota Timberwolve and Atlanta Hawks are all teams who are rumored to be interested in the two-time NBA champion.

There is a belief around the league that the 33-year-old Iguodala could earn a deal worth around $20 million per year.

The Warriors signed him to a four-year, $48-million contract back in the summer of 2013.

In 2015, he earned Finals MVP honors for his defense on LeBron James during Golden State’s 4-2 series victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Then, this season, he recorded 20 points, four rebounds and three assists in the Warriors’ finals-clinching Game 5 win over the Cavaliers.

He averaged 7.6 points, 4.0 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game while shooting 52.8 percent from the floor and 36.2 percent from three-point range this season.

Over the course of his 13-year NBA career, he owns averages of 13 points, 5.3 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 1.6 steals.

Iguodala spent the first eight years of his career with the Philadelphia 76ers. He then played one year with the Denver Nuggets before signing with the Warriors.
