It looks like Doc Rivers has given us a major hint of what could happen in the NBA in the upcoming days. The Los Angeles Clippers head coach was caught liking an Instagram post claiming small forward Andre Iguodala will join his Clippers.
Iguodala is currently part of the Memphis Grizzlies, but nobody expects him to play a single minute with the team. The Clippers are well aware of that and are among the teams who have interest in acquiring Iguodala via trade or if he gets waived by the Grizzlies and becomes an unrestricted free agent.

The former Philadelphia 76ers, Golden State Warriors star is owed $17.2 million next season, the final year of his contract.
Last season he averaged 5.7 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 3.2 assists with the Warriors while shooting 50.0 percent from the field, 33.3 percent from beyond the arc and 58.2 percent from the free-throw line.
Adding the 35-year-old veteran will make the Clippers and even better team. Iggy’s defense, added to four elite defenders in Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, Patrick Beverley, and Montrezl Harrell will take the Californians to a different dimension.
Besides the Clips, Lakers and Rockets have shown their interest in the swingman. Wherever he lands, that team is going to boost its quality.
