Andre Iguodala has been released by the Memphis Grizzlies and the NBA veteran star is free to join any of the team. NBA teams such as Celtics, Clippers, Lakers, etc. are interested in signing Iguodala even before the Grizzlies trade buyout news.
Los Angles Clippers and the Lakers are the two teams which made the biggest deals in free agency and are now the top contenders for the next NBA title. LeBron James-Anthony Davis in the Lakers and Kawhi Leonard-Paul George in the Clippers will have the ultimate battle. It is why the LA Clippers are planning to sign a trade deal Andre Iguodala as he could give LeBron James and the Lakers a tough competition.
Clippers Trio against LeBron James
LeBron James is the biggest factor in the NBA who can change the fate of any game he plays in for. The main reason why the Lakers did so bad in the NBA 2018-19 season was the fact that James was injured for the most part of it. But this year, he is fresh and has the support of Anthony Davis to take the main heat.
Andre Iguodala and the LA Clippers have a mutual interest to unite.
With the Memphis Grizzlies and Iguodala unable to reach a buyout, should the Clippers go after him in a trade?

It is why the Clippers are adding players to guard the beast of a player called LeBron James. Kawhi Leonard, Paul George and Andre Iguodala have all guarded James successfully in their careers before. The Clippers would nullify LeBron James which gives them the biggest edge over the Lakers for the NBA 2019-20 season.
Andre Iguodala Impact on Lakers vs Clippers
Andre Iguodala will ease the job for the Clippers duo Kawhi Leonard and Paul George and handle a major part of their defensive side. It would give them the third star player which both the Lakers and Clippers lack right now. NBA is always about power trios and every time is right now looking for their third power member.
Lakers vs Clippers rivalry may end up as the next NBA finals and having Iguodala on any side can change the game for sure. The Clippers can send out a future pick or Maurice Harkless, JaMychal Green, Rodney McGruder, Jerome Robinson, Patrick Patterson, and Landry Shamet as trade assets to match Iguodala’s salary with the Grizzlies.
