Myers hopes Iguodala stays, explains unique mentor role

The Warriors are keeping their last 2022-23 roster spot open for veteran forward Andre Iguodala and until something changes, that is how it will remain.

On the latest episode of "The TK Show" with The Athletic's Tim Kawakami, Warriors general manager Bob Myers explained that he, coach Steve Kerr, and the rest of the NBA are awaiting Iguodala's decision.

"I hope he plays for us, I know you've heard Steve [Kerr] comment on that," Myers told Kawakami. "I really think he's important to our season."

Myers added that Iguodala is unique in that he can command the respect of the Warriors' Big Three also while being a mentor to Golden State's young players like Jonathan Kuminga, Moses Moody, James Wiseman and Jordan Poole.

"There's no one else in the else that can do that for our team and we think he can still play and help us in certain spots," Myers continued. 

Myers also said that Golden State is letting the four-time champion take as much time as he needs because Iguodala has "earned it."
