On Wednesday, ESPN mentioned on a pre-show broadcast that 76ers swingman Andre Iguodala has asked Sixers' management to trade him. That statement, along with some circulating second and third-hand rumors, created a small amount of buzz that Iguodala wants out of Philly.
That is untrue. Iguodala has not requested a trade, nor has he told management he'd like to be traded if the Sixers aren't winning by midseason. Iguodala has not approached management with any trade request. According to a source, the "news" came from a statement Iguodala made -- saying he'd like to play for a winning team -- that was then taken out of context and morphed into the logical next step: well, if Philly isn't winning, then Iguodala wants out.
Again, Iguodala has not made any request of Sixers' management and has not requested a trade.
