Andre Iguodala will likely opt out of his player option this offseason and become a free agent, but the Denver Nuggets have been adamant about their desire to re-sign him.

When asked about Iguodala possibly returning to the Nuggets, Masai Ujiri said on Thursday: “I’m very optimistic that things will go well. … We want him back.”

Iguodala averaged 18 points, eight rebounds and 5.3 assists in the Nuggets' six-game series loss to the Golden State Warriors in the first round.
