For a second there, it looked likely that Andre Iguodala was headed to the Sacramento Kings, who had a reported four-year, $56 million offer prepared for Iguodala.

In Wojnarowski’s follow-up report on Yahoo! Sports, he notes that Iguodala wasn’t ready to immediately commit to the Kings’ offer. His hesitance caused Sacramento to pull their four-year deal from the table.
Iguodala tweeted this after hearing of the news:
Really?? Ok… MOTIVATION!!!!!!

So, the veteran forward is back to searching for his next team. Wojnarowski reports that he could remain in Denver, where he averaged 13 points, 5.4 assists and 5.3 rebounds in 34.7 minutes per game in 2012-13.
The Nuggets can offer him one more year of security, according to the CBA rules. Their initial offer, however, didn’t sniff Sacramento’s substantial proposal.
Over the past few days, Iguodala also met with the Detroit Pistons, Golden State Warriors, Houston Rockets and Atlanta Hawks. All went well, according to David Aldridge.
Iguodala has options, but the money might’ve been in Sacramento.
