After spending the last six seasons with the Warriors, Andre Iguodala is headed to the Grizzlies.
How much do you love NBA free agency?
Well, the final big move from a wild Sunday was a two-part situation that saw the Warriors land D'Angelo Russell through a sign-and-trade, and trade Andre Iguodala to the Grizzlies to create the cap space needed.
It's hard to imagine Golden State without the 2015 Finals MVP, but such is life now.
But it appears Iguodala might have had an idea this was about to go down.
I'm not saying that because he was talking about Mark Jackson and how the Warriors medical staff handled his fractured leg in the 2018 postseason over the past week, but because of the wild tweets he sent in the lead up to the reported deal.

What did he know before this went down? Apparently, he was well-informed about the potential move.
Andre Iguodala was informed by Warriors early last week that he could be traded to unload salary in event Kevin Durant moved on, league sources told Yahoo Sports. Today’s trade to Memphis wasn’t a shock.— Chris Haynes (@ChrisBHaynes) July 1, 2019
