Andre Iguodala Might Come Off The Bench For The Warriors

The Golden State Warriors are still a work in progress under first-time head coach Steve Kerr. The talent and offense available to Kerr with this roster is well known, but he’ll have to impose his own vision in order to help this team get over the hump.

Per Mike Trudell of, part of that vision might be bringing Andre Iguodala off the bench:

This was implored by Kerr for the Warriors recent preseason game against the Lakers. With Shaun Livingston (toe) out for at least the start of the regular season, Kerr isn’t left with many options for a back up point guard. Using Iguodala’s versatility with the second unit in the meantime is a perfectly viable option and could even encourage further development and confidence for Harrison Barnes.

Golden State has versatile swing forwards in Iguodala, Barnes, and Draymond Green, which helped them create notable match up advantages for themselves in their first-round playoff series with the Clippers last season. Kerr will have to continue to experiment to find the appropriate niche of his new team.
