In attempt to knock off Warriors, teams targeting Andre Iguodala

Andre Iguodala has become the foremost target in an attempt to weaken the Golden State Warriors' choke hold on the NBA, league sources have told ESPN.

The Minnesota Timberwolves, San Antonio Spurs, LA Clippers, Philadelphia 76ers, Orlando Magic, Brooklyn Nets and Utah Jazz are among the teams interested in the 2015 NBA Finals MVP, sources tell ESPN.

It is not yet known if Iguodala will take meetings.

A significant number of personnel within NBA circles have come to the conclusion that rather than building a superteam, it's much more economically feasible and expeditious to just pluck away talent from the Bay Area juggernauts.

Draymond Green and Klay Thompson are under contract for a couple of more seasons, while Iguodala, Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant are unrestricted free agents. However, it's virtually a lock that the latter two aren't venturing elsewhere. Those individuals make up "The Hamptons 5," a nickname for the players involved in the recruiting of Durant in the Hamptons last summer.

The open market, according to rival executives, poses a serious threat of stealing the 33-year-old veteran from the defending champs come July 1, the first day of the free-agency period.
