Andre Iguodala Takes Shots at Sacramento Kings GM Pete D'Alessandro

The Sacramento Kings were all in on then free agent Andre Iguodala, offering the swingman a hefty deal earlier this month. However, just hours after the deal was publicly leaked, the Kings pulled the offer – something the former Arizona Wildcat was not happy with.

Both parties went on their separate ways with Iguodala nearly signing with the Dallas Mavericks before changing his mind at the last minute once the Golden State Warriors cleared enough cap room to sign Iguodala outright.

Iggy left more money on the table from the Kings, Denver Nuggets and apparently Mavericks – so it lead many to believe the 2012 All-Star was using the teams for nothing more than contractual leverage, especially Denver and Sacramento.

Whatever the case, it’s clear Iguodala still holds a grudge from the incident with the Kings as he took some shots at general manager Pete D’Alessandro today on Twitter:

Great job Pete Alassandro (sp?) @TheNBPA#NBPALDP

But he wasn’t done:

Despicable Me looking azz boi!

D’Alessandro of course was with Iguodala in Denver last season.

Stay classy, Andre.

    Glad the Kings didn’t sign this punk. Definitely not worth the offer made, especially knowing how he reacts to situations like this. DMC, McLemore, Vasquez, Thomas, please use this to fuel your game against the Warriors. At least give Iggy a few hard fouls; defend our own and grow together as a unit!!

      Relax, you should check his Twitter page and see his last tweet. Folks like to jump to conclusions too much. It was a joke, like he said Pete is his guy.

        Yeah I’d backtrack too if I made an idiot of myself and everyone was on to me for using other teams for leverage to get an overpaid contact. He wasn’t happy when it happened because Pete called him out on it..

          Oh Please!

          • Joe

    That’s messed up! Name calling from a guy who looks like a grown up version of Steve Urkle. Go Kings!

  • Mello101

    Just goes to show the Kings made the right decision.
