Pistons to pursue Andre Iguodala

David Aldridge of NBA.com:

Nuggets free agent forward Andre Iguodala will be one of the more coveted players in free agency, according to several league sources. Among those expected to come at the 29-year-old Olympian and 2012 All-Star hardest, according to sources, is the Detroit Pistons

The Pistons need a small forward and have the cap room to pursue Iguodala, who might command a four-year contract worth about $12 million per season. Iguodala played for Maurice Cheeks with the 76ers, and  Iguodala would also immediately become one of the Pistons’ top players. At first glance, this makes a lot of sense and would undoubtedly make the Pistons better next season.

But Iguodala is 29, that hurts his long-term value, an issue I explain in greater detail at ProBasketballTalk.
