Ujiri said he'll work on an extension this season for the defensive-minded star who helped the United States win the gold medal at the London Olympics.
Iguodala said he sought out Carmelo Anthony while in London to ask him about Denver and coach George Karl.
Don't worry, Nuggets fans, Melo didn't rip his old coach.
"He said I would be a perfect fit for Coach Karl. We two would really gel together," Iguodala recounted.
Iguodala knows Melo and Karl had their moments, both good and bad, together.
"It's the nature of basketball sometimes, every player and coach are going to have run-ins. George Karl made him a better player and Melo made him a better coach," Iguodala said.
Iguodala credited his time with the Sixers with helping him become the player he is today.
"My game has really picked up in the NBA," Iguodala said. "My whole life I've felt like I can do anything on the basketball court, from playing point guard in high school to having to play center one year in high school, doing everything in college and going through different roles in Philadelphia. Coming in being a rookie, just a defensive stopper and having to be a scorer for three or four years in between there. I've got a lot of confidence that I'll be able to take the big shot or make the play that gets us the shot."
