Andre Iguodala did not seem happy about Sacramento Kings pulling their offer

Andre-Iguodala-NuggetsOn Tuesday, reports surfaced that the Sacramento Kings were aggressively pursuing Andre Iguodala and had offered him a generous four-year, $52 million deal. The offer was not on the table very long.

The Kings pulled the offer either late Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning. A team source reportedly told USA Today Sports that Sacramento wanted a fast answer from the 29-year-old veteran, who was reportedly considering returning to the Denver Nuggets in addition to exploring his options with other teams. Just before word surfaced that the offer was pulled, Iguodala tweeted the following:

ESPN’s Chris Broussard said on Wednesday that the Kings felt as though Iguodala was trying to use them to leverage his position with Denver, which rubbed them the wrong way.

As you know, the Kings are under new ownership. They seemingly decided to go in a different from Tyreke Evans after the point guard was offered a lucrative deal from the New Orleans Pelicans — one that was hefty enough to illicit this reaction from Reggie Miller. Perhaps Sacramento’s new owners are trying to prove that they won’t be pushed around.
