2013 NBA Free Agency: Kings pull Iguodala offer; Pistons back in the mix?

USA TODAY Sports

Andre Iguodala had a $56 million offer from the Sacramento Kings. And then he didn't.

Many fans felt the Detroit Pistons were officially out of the Andre Iguodala sweepstakes once it was reported that the Sacramento Kings had offered the swingman a four-year, $56 million deal.

Too rich for our blood. Wash your hands of the idea and move on.

Not so fast.

The Kings shook up free agency quite a bit as Adrian Wojnarowski has reported that the Kings pulled their offer off the table, apparently after coming to believe that they were being used only as leverage for Iguodala to maximize an offer from the Denver Nuggets.

Wojnarowski writes:

After the Denver Nuggets expressed an unwillingness to match the Sacramento Kings' $14 million-a-year proposal to free-agent forward Andre Iguodala, Iguodala's reluctance to immediately accept the four-year, $56 million offer caused the Kings to withdraw the deal late Tuesday, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

With no major offers elsewhere, Iguodala could return to talks with the Nuggets on a five-year contract extension. Denver wants to keep Iguodala as part of its core, but has shown restraint in formulating potentially salary-cap crippling offers to re-sign him to a long-term deal, sources said.

This could have widespread implications on the free agent market. If the Kings are no longer players for Iguodala they could turn their attention to their own Tyreke Evans (another Pistons target), who apparently signed a big offer sheet from the New Orleans Pelicans.

Meanwhile, if the Pelicans have to go to a plan B there is no telling who they'll throw their money at.
