"Will Andre Iguodala's appetite be ready for a team like the Miami or somewhere else?" "I can't wait until we find a way to trade him so we can play him, and I can show him what Memphis is about".

The 36-year-old has a career average of 12.1 points per game and is the victor of the 2015 NBA Finals MVP Award. Curry added a post-NBA championship photo of Iguodala with a "shush" emoji.

National Basketball Association insider David Aldridge tweeted, "Per league sources, Andre Iguodala is prepared to sit out the rest of this season if Memphis isn't able to orchestrate a trade with one of the agreed-upon teams he designated by Thursday's trade deadline".

While Iguodala is trying to steer his way to a contender, third-year Memphis guard Dillon Brooks just hopes the 36-year-old lands with a team coming up on the Grizzlies' schedule.

Those teams include the Indianapolis Colts, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Tennessee Titans, among others. Brady made a measly $23 million this past season, which ranked 14th among signal callers across the league.

"First time I've seen him was on TV, talking about us. Two, will another team also get engaged here with Memphis between now and Thursday's deadline?"

"A guy that's on our team doesn't want to be on our team", Brooks said. "I feel like he's doing the right thing for his career, but we don't really care".

Morant responded to Curry's subtle jab with a picture of former Warriors star Kevin Durant.

Iguodala is believed to prefer to end up with either the Los Angeles Lakers or Los Angeles Clippers. Charania asked. "You know, he's made clear to some people close to him that he could be prepared to sit out the season if he's not traded to a destination potentially closer to home on the West Coast". Meanwhile, the Iggy-less Grizzlies have improved to 25-25 on the season, which puts them in the eighth spot in the Western Conference.
