Iguodala Still With Nuggets if Ujiri Stayed?
When Andre Iguodala reunited with his former boss, Masai Ujiri, in the Cox Pavilion stands at NBA summer league this week, it was a reminder of what could have been for the Denver Nuggets.
These were the two biggest stars of the rising team that is no more, the player who had helped the Nuggets reach new heights saying hello to the shrewd general manager whose departure for the Toronto Raptors sparked a radical makeover.
After Iguodala and Ujiri shared well wishes before parting ways again, Iguodala acknowledged it might have all turned out differently if all of the pieces had stayed in place.
“No question,” he told USA TODAY Sports when asked if Ujiri’s departure played into his decision to leave. “It definitely had an effect on it, so who knows?”
