Another player on the Dallas Mavericks' free agent wish-list has gone elsewhere.
Multiple reports have indicated that Denver Nuggets free agent forward Andre Iguodala has agreed to sign a four-year, $48 million free agent contract with the Golden State Warriors. Iguodala was one of the players the Mavs coveted during this summer's free agency frenzy.
The Mavs, of course, are handcuffed at the moment in regards to agreeing to terms with any high quality free agents because they're still in the midst of the Dwight Howard Sweepstakes. In other words, as the Mavs wait on Howard, some of the other players they also wish to sign could get away from them and hitch their wagon to another team.
That's the danger of pouring a lot into one player. If that player lets you down -- in this case if Howard doesn't sign with the Mavs -- the trickle down affect could be devastating.
Howard is expected to next play for either the Mavs, Warriors, Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Lakers or Atlanta Hawks. But no one knows for sure when he'll make his decision.
