At 38, Golden State Warriors fullback (or winger) Andre Iguodala announced Friday that he would play one last season with the defending champions.

Andre Iguodala and the Warriors, the story will last! As he hesitated between retiring, at 38, and continuing for another year, the full-back (or winger) announced on Friday that he was choosing the second option, in his “Point Forward” podcast. “We are going to have fun this year. It’s gonna be exciting. I’m really looking forward to getting my guys back on the court and getting back on the road in the NBA and doing what we do best. I’m telling you Steph (Curry), this is the last,” the Illinois native smiled. Crowned champion with the Warriors last June against Boston, after having already been in 2015, 2017 and 2018, Andre Iguodala will therefore aim for the pass of five with the Californian franchise, and that should please his coach Steve Kerr, who said a few days ago that he hoped to see his player re-enlist. “I’m just hopeful, but I really don’t know what Andre is going to do. He came to the training center to train, for the staff to work with him and watch him and I think he has an idea of ​​what he wants to do and we told him from the beginning to take the time he wanted to make up his mind, ”said the Warriors coach.

Golden State, the franchise where he won everything

Drafted ninth in 2004 (the year of No. 1 Dwight Howard) by the Philadelphia 76ers, Andre Iguodala spent seven years in Pennsylvania, before spending a season in Denver and six in Golden State, where he contributed to the reign of the Warriors on the NBA. After four months without playing in Memphis, he bounced back to the Miami side in 2020, before returning last season to his favorite franchise, the Warriors, and winning a new title. In 2021-22, the one who was also 2010 world champion and 2012 Olympic champion with Team USA averaged 4 points, 3.2 rebounds and 3.7 assists in the regular season and 1.6 points, 1 rebound and 1 7 assists in the play-offs.
