The Golden State Warriors are getting ready for their title defense in the 2022-2023 season, but one question looms over the team: will Andre Iguodala be back? Iguodala is a vital member of the Warriors, and his decision could significantly impact their season. He has been deliberating over his future for some time now, and many people wonder what he will decide.

Decision coming very soon

It's no secret the Warriors want the 38-year-old veteran wingman back in the fold. Iguodala is a crucial player, both on and especially off the court. He's a great leader and an excellent defender, bringing a lot of experience to the table. The Warriors are hoping that he will decide to come back for one more season, but it's ultimately up to him. The decision is expected to come soon, with Iguodala saying he will announce it on his "Point Forward" podcast.

"I will be making my—what's a synonym for decision?—announcement, stake my future, on Point Forward. How about that? I'll be making it from here, Point Forward, whether I'm taking my talents back to the Warriors, or taking my talents somewhere else or taking my Black ass home," said Iguodala on the podcast.

Contingency plan in place

While it's clear that Iguodala's glory years are past him (4.0 points, 3.7 assists, 3.2 rebounds per game last season), the former NBA Finals MVP remains a prized member of the Warriors' organization. Despite playing just 31 games last season, Iguodala played a critical role in the development of the Dubs' young players, namely Jordan Poole, Jonathan Kuminga, James Wiseman, and Moses Moody. 

However, if Iguodala does decide to retire, the Warriors have a contingency plan in place. They are hoping to sign one of a handful of veterans they recently worked out with.

This includes Ben McLemore, Elfrid Payton, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, and former Team USA forward Kenneth Faried. While these players are not on Iguodala's level, they would provide the Warriors with some much-needed experience and depth. It will be interesting to see what Iguodala decides to do and how it will impact the Warriors' season. Stay tuned for more updates as we await his decision.
