According to a report, the Los Angeles Lakers are now “in play” to sign Andre Iguodala this offseason.
Andre Iguodala’s former agent is current Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka. The two remain close and the Lakers are a team in play to sign him. https://t.co/g6PEhKtdkQ

Iguodala is not the player he used to be. In the 2020-21 season, he averaged a mere 4.4 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game. The veteran was a star player earlier in his career, but at this point, he brings less to the table than he used to.
Iguodala could still be a nice addition to a Lakers team that is reportedly going to attract a lot of interest from veterans this offseason. With L.A. in a great position to contend for a title, a lot of aging players likely want to join the team in hopes of winning a championship.
Iguodala knows what it’s like to win a title. He has three rings to his name, and he was an integral part of all of them. He could bring his playoff experience and veteran leadership to a Lakers team that already boasts a lot of that.
The former first-round pick has been in the league since the 2004-05 season.
