The Denver Nuggets hosted a press conference on Thursday, August 16th, to introduce new acquisition Andre Iguodala.
SOUNDBITE (English) Andre Iguodala, Denver Nuggets Guard/Forward, on what former Denver Nugget and Team USA team-mate Carmelo Anthony told him
"Carmelo and I actually spoke about Coach (George) Karl before the trade. We were just in the weight room, just talking basketball and I asked him about what Denver was like and we were talking about all the teams (in the NBA) and I had no clue I would be here. And he said 'you would be the perfect fit for Coach Karl. Like you two would really gel with one another.'"

"I've been through so many rumors that pop in and pop out all the time. You kind of become immune to it. It really doesn't faze you until it actually happens and you know, once it happens, you get to thinking like, you get excited again. Like 'what's next?' You got a new challenge. You kinda gotta refocus - different coast, different division, different conference. You size yourself up with everyone else and what you have to do to help the team get to that next level. I'm really excited about it."
