Report: Andre Iguodala has announced his retirement from the NBA

Andre Iguodala averaged 11.3 ppg in his NBA career.

Andscape’s Mark J. According to Spears, former NBA Finals MVP Andre Iguodala is retiring from the NBA. In a phone interview with Andscape, the four-time NBA champion said his playing days are over.

„It’s the Right Time” Iguodala said. “Time is limited for me and I don’t want to put anything on the back seat.

„You want to play at a high level. But then there’s a lot of family. My son is 16, then two girls. So, [I’m] We look forward to watching them grow through those crucial years.

Iguodala played 19 seasons in the NBA, primarily with the Golden State Warriors (eight seasons) and the Philadelphia 76ers (eight seasons). He spent two seasons with the Miami Heat (2019-21), one season with the Denver Nuggets (2012-13) and averaged 11.3 points, 4.9 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 1.4 steals overall in his NBA career.

He was an All-Star in 2012 and an All-Defensive selection in 2010-11 and 2013-14. Perhaps his greatest career moment came in the 2015 NBA Finals. In that series, he earned MVP honors for his defensive play against then-Cavaliers star LeBron James as Golden State topped Cleveland 4-2 in the series for the franchise’s first championship in 40 years.

Last season, Iguodala returned to Golden State after spending two seasons with Miami before that. Iguodala played for the Warriors from 2013-19 as Golden State went from a playoff run to a championship-winning team.

He played a limited role for the Warriors, appearing in eight games, while posting the lowest regular season stats of his career (2.1 ppg, 2.1 rpg, 2.4 apg) and did not appear in a playoff game in 2023. The role of a veteran voice is valued by Golden State, and he told Andscape that he plans to stay in the Bay Area after retirement to pursue his many off-the-court business ventures.
