Despite being the subject of trade rumors over the past year, Philadelphia 76ers swingman Andre Iguodala will remain with the team for the start of next season, according to a report from John Finger of

According to a source, a trade involving Iguodala “won’t happen” during the off-season. As a result of that, the Sixers’ off-season tinkering to their roster is complete and aside from a few free agents who get invitations to training camp, the team is set.

The most recent rumor involving him came in June when it was reported by that the Toronto Raptors were interested in Iguodala for the team's No. 8 Draft pick; the Raptors ended up holding on to the pick and selecting Terrence Ross out of The University of Washington.

If Iguodala does in fact remain in Philadelphia, the team will look to build on its success last season as an eight seed that knocked off the Chicago Bulls in the first round of the NBA playoffs. The team has a young core of Jrue Holiday, Spencer Hawes, Evan Turner and Nick Young, who the Sixers signed to a one-year deal worth $6 million this offseason.
