Andre Iguodala is becoming one of the most interesting players as the NBA February trade deadline is now less than a month away. The former Warriors MVP was traded to the Memphis Grizzlies in the last free agency and since then he has been linked with various teams.
But the problem is Grizzlies are not buying out Iguodala and waiting that one of the contender’s team will make a trade deal for him. The Grizzlies believe that they would easily find a trade partner for Andre Iguodala before February 6, but in case they fail, Memphis will risk getting nothing out for the veteran.
Andre Iguodala Trade Out Might not Happen
Andre Iguodala has been on the trade radar of several NBA teams including Los Angeles Lakers, Dallas Mavericks, Denver Nuggets, Houston Rockets and the Los Angeles Clippers. But none of those basketball clubs is interested in trading a deal for the 35-year-old swingman.

Iguodala was injured in the last season and his performance has also taken a dip, combine it with his age and none of the NBA teams would pay a high sum to the Grizzlies. Andre Iguodala trade out might not happen at all and Memphis needs to buy him out before he becomes useless to them.
Grizzlies are taking a Huge Risk with Iguodala Buyout
Memphis Grizzlies seems to be confident that they would get a trade deal offer for Andre Iguodala very soon. It hints that one of the NBA teams might have offered them something off the books, which is why they are so reluctant. But then again it could be a tactic from the Grizzlies to generate more demands for the veteran so that his trade out becomes easy.

Although, if none of the teams falls for the bluff, Iguodala could go unsold at the trade deadline and Memphis would get nothing in return for 3 three-time NBA champion. It is why the Grizzlies are taking a huge risk with the Iguodala situation and they should change their mind soon.
