Sixers Notes: Ex-Sixer Andre Iguodala: I have no regrets

Posted: March 23, 2013

DENVER - Seven months removed from the trade that sent him to Denver, Andre Iguodala still has nothing but good things to say about his former 76ers teammates.

"I try to look forward," said Iguodala, who was sent to Denver in the four-team trade that brought injured center Andrew Bynum to Philadelphia. "I don't live with regrets. I still talk to the guys in Philly. But we talk mostly about things outside of basketball. I talk to Jrue [Holiday] about getting married. . . . And I talk with Evan [Turner] a lot. "

Iguodala, booed often during his eight years in Philadelphia, said he had no hard feelings toward the city. He also expressed hope that Bynum, who missed the entire season and is recovering from surgery on both knees, recovers quickly.

"It's hard when you see a guy get hurt," Iguodala said. "That's the hardest part."

The Nuggets went into Thursday's game with the Sixers riding a 13-game winning streak.

Iguodala, who was averaging 12.8 points and five rebounds entering the game, said he was "just focusing on getting the younger guys prepared to focus in on playing at the next level, which is the playoffs."

Turnover trouble

The Sixers had 20 turnovers Wednesday night in a 101-72 loss to the Clippers in Los Angeles.

"We turned the ball over and didn't make shots and then we got down on ourselves after that" guard Damien Wilkins said.

Through Wednesday, the Clippers led the league in points off turnovers (19.8). Denver (19.6) was second.
