From the Bay Area to ... Sydney, Australia?
That's what Andrew Bogut jokingly suggested to Andre Iguodala on Monday now that the two are both former Warriors. Iguodala could be up for the challenge, too.

But, there's a catch.
Iguodala, an avid golf fan, will only leave the NBA for the NBL if Bogut can guarantee him a golf membership. It looks like this is a done deal.
Okay, back to reality.
ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Sunday night that the Warriors traded Iguodala, the 2015 NBA Finals MVP, to the Grizzlies. The move comes as a way to afford All-Star guard D'Angelo Russell, whom the team acquired from the Nets in a sign-and-trade and reportedly agreed to a four-year, $117 million contract with the former No. 2 pick.
Iguodala might not be in Memphis for long, though. The veteran reportedly will get bought out by the Grizzlies and could be joining LeBron James and the Lakers.
The entire NBA is changing before our eyes. Iguodala has been on the move once in the past few days, and could be again.
A move to Sydney, however, won't be happening.
