Report: 76ers captivated by potential reunion with Andre Iguodala

Report: 76ers captivated by potential reunion with Andre Iguodala

With the ninth pick in the 2004 NBA Draft, the Philadelphia 76ers select ... Andre Iguodala.

The 76ers are captivated by a potential reunion with the soon-to-be free agent, according to ESPN's Chris Haynes.

Markelle Fultz, Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid, Dario Saric and Iguodala? 

Iguodala spent the first eight seasons of his career in Philly.

He averaged 15.3 points, 5.8 rebounds, 4.9 assists and 1.7 steals over 615 games (all starts).

In 2012 -- his final season with the 76ers -- he was an All-Star.

In August 2012, Iguodala was traded to Denver.

After the Nuggets lost to the Warriors in the playoffs in 2013, he landed with the Warriors.

According to ESPN's report, the 76ers are one of seven teams -- Timberwolves, Spurs, Clippers, Magic, Nets, Jazz -- interested in Iguodala.

The 2015 Finals MVP will turn 34 years old in January.

A week ago, Iguodala called into KBLX 102.9 FM and said the following:

"Business is business so you gotta do your due diligence. And I'll let my people do their thing, see how that goes. The Bay has been special to me, so you always have your perfect situation and hopefully that gets done.

"I'm gonna let my people do their job. And I just want everybody to be respectful of that and not get too emotional about it because I've been getting hit up crazy and I haven't said anything."

Iguodala has earned over $120 million in his career.
