agent to Golden State, with Utah shipping guard Randy Foye to the Nuggets and
the Jazz receiving the Warriors' second-round pick in the 2018 draft in
Foye is also an unrestricted free agent, but Yahoo! Sports reported Sunday
that the Jazz would sign the long-range shooter to a three-year, $9 million
deal before sending him to Denver.
Multiple sources stated on Friday that Iguodala, an Eastern Conference All-
Star with Philadelphia in 2012 and one of the top available players on this

a franchise record with 178 makes from 3-point range and shot 41 percent from
that distance while averaging 10.8 points over 82 games. The seven-year pro
had signed a one-year contract with Utah last July.
The seventh overall pick of the 2006 draft, Foye has averaged 11.5 points, 3.0
assists and 2.2 rebounds over 471 career games with Minnesota, Washington, the
Los Angeles Clippers and the Jazz.
Iguodala, 29, averaged 13.0 points, 5.3 rebounds, 5.4 assists and 1.7 steals
per game during his only season with the Nuggets in 2012-13.

1.7 steals per game over the course of his career. He spent his first eight
seasons with the 76ers.
The trade cannot become official until Wednesday, when the NBA's moratorium on
player signings and trades is lifted.
