NBA Free Agency: Kings to meet with Andre Iguodala, according to report

Sacramento officials are expected to visit with the Denver forward in L.A. on Monday.


The Sacramento Kings are one of six teams expected to meet with free agent Andre Iguodala on Monday, reports Yahoo! Sports' Marc Spears. The Kings have been mentioned in Iguodala rumors based largely on Sacramento's serious need for help at small forward and the free agent's relationship with Pete D'Alessandro, who was the No. 2 in the front office that brought 'Dala to Denver in 2012.

It's unclear whether D'Alessandro sees Iguodala as a player to go along with Tyreke Evans, or a potential replacement. The Kings, of course, drafted a true two-guard in Ben McLemore on Thursday. Iguodala has played plenty of small forward and Evans has played quite a bit point guard, but it's unclear how the front office sees those three pieces fitting, if at all.

To land Iguodala for the price he's expected to pull, the Kings would have to see Evans' situation resolved (his cap hold is above $10 million), amnesty John Salmons and/or find a way to unload a substantial contract like Marcus Thornton or Chuck Hayes.

I ranked Iguodala the No. 4 free agent in the class. Evans was No. 6.
