Andre Iguodala believes the Golden State Warriors are going to run it back next season even though Kevin Durant has a player option for 2019-20 and Klay Thompson can become an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
"I don't think we look at it that way at all, especially for myself," he told reporters when asked how difficult it will be to keep the team together (h/t Drew Shiller of NBC Bay Area). "I'll be here next year for sure, and I'm pretty confident that we'll have our core back and we'll try to make another run at it. But our key right now is to focus in on tomorrow's game and the things we can do to try to keep the season going."
Shiller pointed out the number of lingering questions about Iguodala's answer, especially as the Warriors face a 3-1 deficit in the 2019 NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors.
In particular, it wasn't clear whether the veteran swingman considered Durant part of the core or if that group was limited to the foursome comprised of himself, Stephen Curry, Thompson and Draymond Green. That quartet has been around for each of the last five NBA Finals.
