“It’s just the right time,” Iguodala told Andscape in a phone interview. “Time started to get limited for me, and I didn’t want to put anything in the back seat. I didn’t want to have to try to delegate time anymore. Especially with on the court, off the court with family. A lot.

He played in just eight games last year as he battled injuries during a tumultuous season for Golden State. 

Iguodala ends his career with an average of 11.3 points, 4.9 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 1.4 steals per game. He was selected to two All-NBA Defensive teams.
