Kings Pull $56 Million Offer to Iguodala
After making a four-year, $52 million bid, the Kings will now group and decide the next move in their rebuilding efforts. The person spoke to USA TODAY Sports on the condition of anonymity because of the private nature of the situation.
With the team now under new ownership and being run by new general manager and former Denver Nuggets executive Pete D’Alessandro, Iguodala – who was traded to the Nuggets last season after spending his first eight seasons in Philadelphia – became their top target after the New Orleans Pelicans came hard for Kings restricted free agent Tyreke Evans.
But the Kings wanted an answer from Iguodala, who was still considering returning to Denver while also being pursued by the likes of Detroit and others. When Iguodala wasn’t prepared to give the answer quick enough for the Kings’ liking, they made the calculated decision to go a different direction. What direction that is however, wasn’t immediately clear.
