The Golden State Warriors got a taste of what new acquisition Andre Iguodala can bring in his pre-season debut on Monday versus the Sacramento Kings. Iguodala and his new teammates take on the Utah Jazz, which are making their first preseason appearance on Tuesday.
Golden State Warriors head coach Mark Jackson
The Warriors beat the Kings, 94-81 in their first outing buoyed by Iguodala, who finished with 7 points, 3 rebounds, 3 assists and 5 steals. Star point guard Stephen Curry top-scored with 23 points.
"It's what makes us the best team. It's what completes us as a team," Jackson told the Associated Press via ESPN.COM. "What unit's starting, which guy coming off the bench, to me, that's key.
"I don't think any team I played on, it wasn't necessarily the best five players starting. Sometimes you needed different things off the bench that completed us as a team. And I'll look at all of those things and make a decision."
Iguodala started for the Warriors alongside Curry, Harrison Barnes, David Lee and Andrew Bogut.
The Jazz, who are on a rebuilding mode, will be led by a very young squad that includes Derrick Favors, Enes Kanter, Gordan Hayward, Trey Burke and Alec Burks.
