Steve Kerr thinks Andre Iguodala can still play multiple more years
Andre Iguodala may be 35 years old, but his head coach thinks that he still has some solid burn left in him.
Addressing reporters on Saturday, Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr said that Iguodala can play beyond his current contract, but acknowledged that the veteran forward may not want to, per Connor Letorneau of the San Francisco Chronicle.
Steve Kerr on Andre Iguodala: “I think he can play beyond this contract if he really wants. He may not want to. He may want to go golf, but he can if he wants.”

Iguodala is owed $17.2 million for next season, but his deal expires in 2020, when he would be nearing 37. With an All-Star selection, two All-Defensive Teams, a Finals MVP Award, and the possibility of winning his fourth NBA title this June, the incentive is there for Iggy to think about calling it quits.
That said though, Iguodala can still ball, as his defense and playmaking off the bench give juice to the Warriors’ best units, particularly their acclaimed Death Lineup. The former No. 9 overall pick has had some recent health concerns, but it sounds like the Dubs will leave the light on for him if he wants to play another couple of years.
