The Golden State Warriors seems to be in a lot of trouble after the free agency 2019 has started. First, they lost Kevin Durant to the Brooklyn Nets, then they have to re-sign an injured Klay Thompson for a high price. It didn’t end at that, the Warriors also had to trade out DeAndre Jordan to the Nets and Andre Iguodala to the Memphis Grizzlies team.
The Nets team with the Durant-Irving-Jordan trio has turned into a strong contender for the next NBA finals. At the same time, the Grizzlies team is expected to trade out Iguodala to a rival team of the Warriors. Here are the NBA teams to which if Andre Iguodala is traded, could bring a lot more trouble for the Warriors.

Los Angeles Lakers
One of the teams that have the best chances to land Andre Iguodala is the Los Angeles Lakers, who have $32 million in their cap space. The Lakers are actively looking for a third-star player to support their power duo of LeBron James and Anthony Davis. If they can’t land Kawhi Leonard, then Iguodala could be a priority for them. The 35-year-old veteran player assisted Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry a lot in the Warriors team and has enough experience which the Lakers needs.
Andre Iguodala started his career with the team of Philadelphia 76ers where he has played 8 NBA seasons. While playing for the 76ers, he had an amazing average of 19.9 points, 5.4 rebounds and 4.8 assists per game. Jimmy Butler has left the Philly team and they need someone to replace him. With Tobias Harris and Al Horford in their team, the 76ers could use Iguodala in a lot of ways.
Utah Jazz is one of the few teams who have the potential to win big if it gets the proper bench strength. With Andre Iguodala in their team, the Jazz team could come out strong for the next NBA finals. Mitchell, Conley, Gobert, Ingles and others in the Utah team could become stronger with the experience of Iguodala. The Warriors would have a tough time even to reach the NBA 2020 finals with Andre playing for the rival teams.
