Andre Iguodala Wants Contract Extension, Serge Ibaka Gets One

For the past few seasons, Andre Iguodala's name has come up in numerous trade rumors and contract talks. After years of debating what to do with Iguodala, the Sixers finally caved and sent the swingman to Denver in the four team mega-deal that included names like Dwight Howard, Andrew Bynum, and Aaron Affalo. 

The face of the franchise ever since Allen Iverson left town, Iguodala is a mini LeBron in that he can do everything on the court-just not as well his majesty.

But the newest member of the Nuggets doesn't want his new city to just be a stopping point.

"We weren't coming into this thinking this will be a one-year deal," Iguodala said. "This is definitely a place that I can see myself for more than just a year or two."

Iguodala is only under contract for the upcoming season, but both sides seem to be on the same page-for now.

Meanwhile, things in Oklahoma City have settled down after securing Serge Ibaka for the next five seasons after the young fella agreed to a four-year extension reportadly worth $48 million. 

Ibaka (@sergeibaka9) posted on twitter:
"So happy for the opportunity to be part of the @OKCThunder  for 5 more years! Proud to play for this team and for the best fans in the @NBA."

The Thunder still have some work to do with James Harden set to hit free agency after next season, but for now, they have the pieces in place to make another run at an NBA title.
