OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - The Golden State Warriors are a team that prized free agents have avoided for most of the last two decades, nothing more than loveable losers with a faithful following and an ambiguous name on the NBA map.
Maybe no more.
Calling it ``a transformative moment for our franchise,'' general manager Bob Myers says Andre Iguodala's addition demonstrates that Golden State is now a desirable destination. The Warriors formally introduced Iguodala on Thursday, nearly a week after he agreed to a four-year, $48 million deal despite more lucrative offers.
Iguodala says he wanted to come to the Bay Area because he believes in the franchise's vision, which he saw firsthand when the Warriors knocked out his Denver team in the first round of the playoffs.
