Iguodala -- Still Due Over $44MM

Iguodala still has 3 years left on his contract, which will pay him $13.5 million next season, $14.7 million the next season and $15.9 million in 2013-14.

I hate to doom the guy to the NBA outposts of the world, but isn't his career about to the point where he should just go become the star on a shitty club like the Timberwolves? Right? I mean, look at Zach Randolph -- signs an absolutely absurd deal with Portland (mid-level club), doesn't justify the deal, kicks around, ends up in Memphis (in a deal made of desperation by the Grizzle -- people thought they would try to move or cut ZBo) where he suddenly starts justifying his money.

Iggy will never be anything but a salary cap burden in Philly. He really is not a clutch player (how many late game shots does he take and miss? I don't think there is another player in the NBA where they go to him more late and he converts so little).

But in Minnesota -- hell, you are all we got!! Give it hell, jack up a ton of shots, no pressure. If by some miracle we get a couple other good players, you are suddenly the "veteran leader" of the club!
