According to CBS Sports, Andre Iguodala is going to re-sign with the Golden State Warriors. Iguodala will be a free agent after this season.

Despite this news, while they’re in the first-round series with the Portland Trail Blazers, the Warriors are going to have several key decisions to make in the summer. They will also have to determine if Kevin Durant will return, along with key bench player Shaun Livingston, also being a free agent in July.

Durant — who signed with the team last off-season in the biggest free agent signing — plans to stay put.

“An NBA source said the only real open question for Iguodala to re-sign is the number of seasons on the deal with the Warriors,” a source told RealGM.

The Warriors are going to be in a tight cap situation — and depending on Durant’s contract situation — it would affect their other decisions. Since they do not own his Bird rights, Durant could seek the max of $36 million for next season.

If he decides he wants to go this route, it would cost the team and would mean that they would have to renounce the rights to Iguodala and Livingston. When Durant signed with the team, they had to renounce their rights to Harrison Barnes and Andrew Bogut, who would both go to the Dallas Mavericks thereafter.

Should Durant decide to take just a 20% increase, from $26.5 million to $31.8 million, they could use his Bird Rights and they would not have to fit him into their cap structure. They also would be able to keep both Iguodala, along with Livingston — and go beyond the salary cap.

With the Warriors having Stephen Curry’s Bird Rights, his contract extension will not impact the equation of the players above. Curry’s four-year, $44 million deal is set to expire this summer.
