The Memphis Grizzlies haven’t given up on the idea of engineering a trade of Andre Iguodala and reportedly are convinced they’ll find a trade partner.
Marc Stein of the New York Times shared Friday that the Mavericks, who’ve been linked to Iguodala, are not “actively pursuing” a trade for the veteran. However, he did write that the Grizzlies “remain convinced they can find a trade partner for Iguodala and his $17.2 million salary before the Feb. 6 trade deadline.”
Additionally, Stein noted that teams like the Los Angeles Lakers, Los Angeles Clippers and Houston Rockets “stubbornly retain hope that the former Warriors defensive ace becomes a buyout candidate.”
At this point, it’s a waiting game. Teams that are interested in potentially acquiring the savvy veteran are simply waiting Memphis out at this point.
