The Athletic’s David Aldridge tweeted on Monday night that Andre Iguodala is prepared to sit out the rest of the NBA if the Memphis Grizzlies aren’t able to agree to a trade “with one of the agreed-upon teams he designated” ahead of Thursday’s trade deadline. Iguodala hasn’t played a game for the Grizzlies after being acquired in a trade with the Golden State Warriors over the offseason.

And it seems Iguodala’s Memphis teammates are *quite* fine with him going somewhere else.

The Grizzlies’ Dillon Brooks — averaging 16.1 points per game in his third NBA season — told reporters on Monday night that he “can’t wait” for the organization to trade Iguodola, “so [the Grizzlies] can play him and show him what Memphis is really about.”

Brooks got support on Twitter from Memphis star rookie Ja Morant.

And Morant is liking tweets on the subject.

 

Iguodala, 36, reportedly would like to be traded to a contender. He spent the previous six seasons with the Warriors, winning three championships and being a key depth player (primarily known for his defense).
