People familiar with situation: Warriors to sign Iguodala, clear cap space in trade with Jazz

Two people with knowledge of the situation say the Golden State Warriors and free agent Andre Iguodala have reached an agreement on a $48 million, four-year deal.

The people spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press on Friday because NBA rules prevent confirmation of moves until July 10. One said the Warriors cleared more than $24 million in salary cap space by sending Richard Jefferson, Andris Biedrins and Brandon Rush to the Utah Jazz along with unspecified draft picks.

Yahoo Sports first reported the deal.

Iguodala averaged 13 points, 5.4 assists and 5.3 rebounds for the Denver Nuggets last season. He spent his first eight years in the NBA with the Philadelphia 76ers.
