Jackson Leaving Knicks, Iguodala Target


BASKETBALL

After some very heated and public disputes the New York Knicks and team President Phil Jackson decided to part ways. Much of the friction between Jackson and team owner, James Dolan, had to do with whether or not the team would buy-out Carmelo Anthony’s remaining 2 year $54 million contract and whether they would trade their star Kristaps Porzingis. The team was clearly in disarray, so Jackson leaving could be a good thing to get the Knicks back on track.

Free agency begins on July 1st and rumors are flying. One of the biggest targets seems to be the Warriors Andre Iguodala. According to ESPN’s Chris Hayes, there are at  least 7  teams interested in him.

“Andre Iguodala has become the foremost target in an attempt to weaken the Golden State Warriors’ chokehold on the NBA, league sources have told ESPN. The Minnesota Timberwolves, San Antonio Spurs, LA Clippers, Philadelphia 76ers, Orlando Magic, Brooklyn Nets and Utah Jazz are among the teams interested in the 2015 NBA Finals MVP. It is not yet known if Iguodala will take meetings.”
