    The Golden State Warriors have reached agreement with Andre Iguodala on a four-year, $48 million contract.

    Iguodala spent one season with the Denver Nuggets.

    The Warriors created cap space by agreeing to send Andris Biedrins, Richard Jefferson and Brandon Rush to the Uath Jazz.

    Warriors' GM Bob Myers and Igoudala's agent, Rob Pelinka, SFX colleagues for six years under Arn Tellem, worked furiously over the past 48 hours to make this deal possible.

    Iguodala was offered a four-year, $52 million deal from the Nuggets, along with a five-year scenario.

    I'm wondering what this means for Harrison Barnes in terms of the starting lineup. I guess this is a good thing though, as we need an answer for guarding backcourt positions and having an extra ballhandler on the floor that can take it inside. I can see Harrison Barnes matching up with SG/SF and maybe some PF, while AI can guard pg, sg, sf. This gives plenty of options defensively and AI makes teams better.

    I think Iggy starts at SF and Barnes gets kicked to the bench. I like Klay and Iggy's defense in the starting unit, similar to San Antonio with their two defensive wings, but ours are better on offense. Plus you keep Curry and Klay's shooting together which is a major strength of this team. Barnes will have the ultimate green light and be able to prey on weaker second units.

    I like this move a lot for the Warriors.

    Iggy can almost win games by himself. He won't need to, though.
