Andre Iguodala’s unwillingness to play with the Memphis Grizzlies has upset the team’s young guards Dillon Brooks and Ja Morant.
As earlier reported, Iguodala is prepared to sit out the rest of the season if the Grizzlies don’t trade him.
Brooks made his thoughts clear to reporters on Monday night:
“First time I seen him was on TV talking about us. It doesn’t even matter. Andre Iguodala is a great player. I feel like he’s doing the right thing for his career, but we don’t really care.”
Brooks also went on to say, “It’s not a distraction at all. I laugh at that type of stuff. A guy that’s on our team that doesn’t want to be on our team, I can’t wait til we find a way to trade him so we can play him and show him really what Memphis is about.“
Morant shared Brooks’ thoughts with the use of a shouting emoji on Twitter:
At the beginning of the season, the Grizzlies were not expected to be a playoff contender.
Now, the team finds themselves in the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference with a record of 25-25, but Iguodala still won’t play with their up-and-coming exciting, young players.
