After being traded to the Memphis Grizzlies last July, onetime Warriors NBA Finals MVP Andre Iguodala has done nothing but sit on the bench. And rumors are mounting that Iguodala may get traded again before Thursday's trade deadline — something that a couple of his younger Grizzlies teammates are publicly hoping for.
That doesn't sit so well with former teammate Steph Curry, who's been out himself with an injury since early in this season. Curry published an image to an Instagram story Monday night (still live) that appeared to be a direct reply to Dillon Brooks and Ja Morant, with the former quoted on Twitter as saying, "I cant wait til we find a way to trade [Iguodala] so we can play him and show him really what Memphis is about."
The initial tweet, and Morant's retweet, below:

And, as SFGate reported Tuesday, here's Curry's response, with a photo of Iguodala holding the NBA Championship trophy:

Then, Tuesday morning, because this is high school, Morant replies throwing shade back at Curry implying that Kevin Durant was responsible for the Warriors' trophies.
The Miami Heat is rumored, meanwhile, to have some interest in getting Iguodala, according to CBS Sports, and the Warriors may be considering trading D'Angelo Russell for someone on the Timberwolves.
We shall see.
