Three days after declaring his retirement from playing basketball, Andre Iguodala has returned to the court.
The former Golden State Warriors champion has a position at ESPN, according to Monday’s report by Richard Deitsch of The Athletic. Iguodala will work for the network as a studio analyst. The announcement is made just one day before the start of the new NBA season.
Iguodala has a solid history in sports media as a four-time NBA champion, two-time All-Defensive selection, and one-time All-Star. With his former NBA colleague and close friend Evan Turner, Iguodala has co-hosted the well-liked “Point Forward” podcast for the past 15 months.
It is not unexpected that Iguodala is still involved in basketball after 19 seasons in the NBA and even a brief time as the Players Association’s vice president. However, now that he is retired, we have lately learned about one of his other intriguing non-sports endeavors.
