Andre Iguodala officially announces retirement and what he will do in the future

Andre Iguodala has officially announced his retirement.

The decision was in the air, as he had already announced that last season would be his last season. A troubled year, in which he played just eight games with the Golden State Warriors.

The officiality of the retirement comes from DealBook, newsletters of the New York Times, to which Iguodala revealed that he will devote himself full time to Mosaic, the investment fund over $200 million in which he is a partner. To Marc J. Spears on AndScape added that he wants to devote more time to his family: “The time is right. My time is less and less and I don’t want to neglect other things anymore, just take time away from my family. Playing at the highest level is beautiful but family is so important, my son is 16 and I have two other girls, I want to see them grow up in the most important years.”

In short, other interests and major physical problems behind Iguodala’s decision to hang up his cleats at 39 years old, 19 of which he spent in the NBA. Chosen by the Philadelphia 76ers in 2004 with the #9 call-up, he became the star of the Sixers before changing dimensions in the second half of his career. A role as a luxury sixth man and defensive specialist that allowed him to win four NBA titles with the Golden State Warriors. The one that has left the biggest mark in the collective memory is the first one, in 2015, when he also won the Finals MVP title.

Successes off the field as well with successful investments in IT companies such as Zoom and CloudFare but also in sports with involvement in Leeds United. Now a career as a full-time businessman and family man, excluding for now a role in basketball.
