NBA veteran wing Andre Iguodala has announced he will sign back with the Golden State Warriors for his 19th NBA season. He announced the decision on his Point Forward podcast. While he did not play as much this past season due to injuries, he was an invaluable voice of leadership on the team. He was quoted saying “I’m letting you know now, Steph, this the last one.” So it seems the 2022-23 NBA season will be the last year the veteran wing suits up in the NBA.

It seems likely that Andre Iguodala will play a similar role this year with the Golden State Warriors. He will come off the bench and play in some key moments for the team. His value as a mentor is a big addition to the team and could help lead them to his fifth NBA Championship. We here at Def Pen Sports would like to congratulate him on his long and successful career in the NBA.
