Iguodala played 1,231 games over the course of 19 seasons, averaging 11.3 points, 4.9 rebounds, and 4.2 assists.

 Before opting to retire, the 2012 All-Star said he turned down interest from the Warriors and numerous other organisations.

Iguodala, 39, told Andscape in a phone interview that "it's simply the right moment." "My time was running out, 

and I didn't want to load the rear seat with anything. I didn't want to have to attempt time management again. Particularly while on the court and spending time with family. A lot.

"You want to do well. Family is a lot, though. My son is sixteen, followed by two girls. So I'm excited to watch them mature throughout those crucial years.
