Sacramento Kings Offer Andre Iguodala Four Year, $56 Million Contract

Yeah, you can pick your jaw up off the floor now.

In an effort to change the losing culture that has put a dark cloud over the franchise for the past half decade, the new Sacramento Kings owners are hoping to make a free agent splash by signing Andre Iguodala.

Considered to be one of the premier second tier free agents behind Dwight Howard, Iguodala reportedly was offered a five year, $63 million dollar contract by the Denver Nuggets earlier today. Hoping to lure him away, the Kings have offered the former Arizona Wildcat a four year, $56 million dollar deal, this according to Yahoo Sports.

Per Wojo:

Sacramento is offering free agent Andre Iguodala a four year, approximately $56 million contract, league sources tell Y! Sports.

It’s a hefty price to pay, but one the Kings will need to do if they want to snag Iguodala away from Denver.

The Kings still do have the ability to amnesty John Salmons if they’re so inclined, though they may opt to keep him if they sign Iguodala considering it’s extremely likely Tyreke Evans will depart for the New Orleans Pelicans in that scenario.
