Iguodala Looks to Win Gold Medal in London
Over the weekend, Sixers swingman Andre Iguodala—along with Los Angeles Clipper Blake Griffin and Oklahoma City’s James Harden—was named to the U.S. Olympic basketball roster. The trio, and a few others, will join five members of the “Redeem Team” that helped the United States bring home gold from the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. Coach Mike Krzyzewski sees Iguodala playing a versatile role for the team.
“We may have him guard a point guard or we may use him as an attacking wing on offense,” Krzyzewski said. “When I coached Andre in 2010, I tried to use him in a variety of spots and situations and I envision that being the same with this team.
“He does so many things well and his basketball IQ is so high, I feel very comfortable wherever we decide to use him.” [Daily News]
