“Yeah, I’m really excited about that, you know?” Iguodala said of joining Jimmy Butler. “Jimmy Butler, obviously proven as one of those guys who is looked at as different, but very well-respected in terms of the passion and the hard work that he brings to the game. And I felt like his temperament and the values that he has really resonates with the Miami Heat.
“They’re very well aligned and I think he’s brought out the best in those young guys. Those are some of the guys I’m really excited about as well because I feel like I can make the most impact with those guys.
“My big man Bam, I’m really looking forward to playing with him. I’ve been hearing about him the last couple of years from a friend out in Miami. Helping him get better, I’m really excited about that opportunity.”
Iguodala hasn’t played a game yet this season, but he has agreed to a two-year, $30-million contract extension with the Heat.
He played the previous six seasons with the Golden State Warriors where he won three championships.
Iguodala has career averages of 12.1 points, 5.1 rebounds and 4.4 assists per game.
