In a radio interview on Thursday, Andre Iguodala said that he doesn't think trading Klay Thompson is a good idea.

Klay's name has come up in recent trade rumors that would have Thompson and others headed to Minnesota in exchange for Kevin Love, but Iguodala hopes the trade doesn't happen. "I want to clear that up right now. We should not trade Klay Thompson," Iguodala told SiriusXM. "We've got to keep Klay first. Then we've got to take care of Klay." Iguodala later added that he thinks Love would be a good addition, but that he wouldn't want to acquire him at the expense of Thompson. However, unless Iguodala has any sway in the front office, his backing of Thompson likely won't change the Warriors' plans on this front.

Andre Iguodala has made the 2013-14 All-Defensive First Team.

This is the first time Iguodala has made the All-Defensive First Team, and the first Warrior to make the first team since Nate Thurmond in 1970-71. Iguodala lead the NBA in plus/minus per game averaging a +9.0 differential while on the court.
Jun 2 - 2:56 PM

Warriors coach Steve Kerr said that he doesn't want Andre Iguodala "standing in the corner" offensively, because "that's where he gets lost a little bit."

Iguodala launched 71 corner 3-pointers last season, accounting for more than 15 percent of all his attempts. He shot at a respectable clip, but it's good to hear that Kerr wants him more actively engaged in the offense -- Iguodala's 7.3 shots per game were the second-lowest of his career, behind only his rookie season with Philly in 2004-05.

Andre Iguodala (knee) won't require offseason surgery after a year-end physical revealed tendinitis in his right knee and soreness in his left hip.

Iguodala also underwent an MRI as part of his physical and the plan at the moment is for the 30-year-old is to rest over the offseason and potentially receive an injection. The knee tendinitis caused Iguodala to miss six games in his first season with the Warriors in which he averaged under double-digit points (9.3) for the first time since his rookie season. Iggy did finish fifth in Defensive Player of the Year voting, so an offseason of rest and recovery should help him come back strong on both ends of the court for the 2014-15 season.
May 15 - 10:26 AM

Andre Iguodala had one of his best games in a Golden State uniform on Sunday during Game 4's 118-97 win over the Clippers, scoring 22 points on 6-of-8 from the field with four boards, nine assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers.

He made 8-of-10 from the line to make this one of the more efficient lines of the postseason. Iguodala also put on a passing clinic and five of his nine assists led to 3-pointers. Iguodala hasn't quite lived up to his big contract from the offseason especially with guys like Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap going bonkers lately, but he's capable or running and offense and does a solid job playing defense.
Apr 27 - 7:10 PM

Andre Iguodala fouled out of Saturday's game with eight points and three assists in only 19 minutes of action.

Warriors coach Mark Jackson kept Iguodala in the game with three fouls in the first half and he quickly picked up his fourth, followed by a fifth early in the third quarter. The Clippers had their own foul problems with Chris Paul and Blake Griffin both sitting out much of the second half, and the Warriors were able to escape with a thrilling 109-105 victory despite Iguodala's absence down the stretch.
Apr 19 - 6:53 PM

Andre Iguodala (rest) will not play on Wednesday.

Iguodala recently dealt with a knee injury and his minutes have been monitored in recent weeks, so he was a top candidate for a precautionary day of rest. He'll be ready to go for the postseason.
Apr 16 - 2:00 PM

Andre Iguodala will not play on Monday against the Wolves.

Iguodala has been in and out of the lineup throughout the stretch run so this is no surprise. Andrew Bogut is out, too, so look for Marreese Speights and Draymond Green to get a bunch of minutes. Green is a strong spot play tonight and Speights is a risk-reward play, while Harrison Barnes is much too risky to use unless the team is sitting a bunch of their scorers.
Apr 14 - 8:58 PM

Andre Iguodala returned to action on Sunday after sitting out one game as a precaution, and he notched 15 points, five rebounds and four assists in 37 minutes.

Iguodala looked sharp with nine of the Warriors' first 16 points before cooling off, and he added one 3-pointer and a steal for good measure. A reduced role offensively has led to Iguodala's lowest scoring (9.2 points per game) since his rookie season, but his judicious shot selection has also yielded his best FG percentage (47.5 percent) since the 2005-06 season with Philly.
Apr 14 - 12:09 AM

Andre Iguodala (rest) will be in the Warriors' starting lineup on Sunday.

He was rested for Friday's game as a precaution during the Warriors' back-to-back set, but there never seemed to be any underlying injury or cause for real concern. His return sends Harrison Barnes back to the bench.
Apr 13 - 8:56 PM

Andre Iguodala and Jermaine O'Neal will not play against the Lakers on Friday.

Coach Mark Jackson said he was going to monitor Iguodala's minutes in a back-to-back set, so that apparently meant he wasn't going to play him at all. He should be ready to go against the Blazers on Sunday. Harrison Barnes will start and will look to turn around a disappointing sophomore season.
Apr 11 - 9:32 PM

Andre Iguodala played 27 minutes vs. the Nuggets on Thursday with six points, four boards, three assists, two steals and two fouls.

Coach Mark Jackson said he will monitor Iguodala's minutes in back-to-back sets, so he could be in the low 20s vs. the Lakers on Friday or there could even be a DNP on the way. Although, the Warriors will probably want to win that game because the Suns are now just one game behind them for the sixth seed.
Apr 11 - 1:56 AM

Coach Mark Jackson said he will monitor Andre Iguodala's minutes in remaining back-to-back sets.

The Warriors have back-to-back sets on Apr. 10-11 and Apr. 13-14, so Iggy's five-game remaining schedule won't quite yield terrific numbers. It's possible he will sit out at least one of those games even though coach Mark Jackson said he won't rest his players. Harrison Barnes would stand to benefit, but he has disappointed too often to be picked up.
Apr 9 - 4:02 PM

Andre Iguodala (knee) returned to action but wasn't needed a whole lot in the Warriors' 102-69 win over the Kings on Friday, playing just 17 minutes on his way to four points, four rebounds, two assists and two steals.

This might actually be good news for owners since he didn't need to push Iguodala's knee with the Warriors depleted and still in the hunt for playoff seeding. He went big on Tuesday against the Mavs so he certainly warrants consideration in lineups, but comes with a bit of risk given the injury situation.
