Not many people expected Andre Iguodala would be traded to the Memphis Grizzlies but the former Warriors forward had a feeling it would happen. 

Listen to your team news NOW.

Iguodala revealed in an interview with Monte Poole from NBC Sports Bay Area that he predicted he would be traded to Memphis:

"So, I'm texting my wife, telling her I'll probably get traded because I think it's 100 percent sure, even though everyone else is saying, it's only a chance. Then, once KD (Kevin Durant) left, I'm like, 'Yeah, I'll probably get traded. They're probably going to do a sigh-and-trade, so they can get something back, to at least get assests for him.' No one was thinking that. But I was thinking they'll want to get assests back because they can't just let him go. And they'll probably move me as well. So, she asked me where I thought I would go. I said, 'I don't know, I'll probably end up in Memphis or some sh--t.'

"She says, 'For real?' I was like, 'Maybe. But probably not. I don't know.'

"The next day, I got the message. It was Memphis. I fell out laughing."

Iguodala also isn't quite ready to move on from the Bay Area. He spent most of his summer in the Bay and he plans to live in the Bay Area for the next five or six years. 

He also "forgets" he's not on the Warriors anymore. Iguodala saw Curry last Monday at TPC Harding Park for Curry's golf tournament and they talked about all the things they usually talk about which included the Warriors.

"It was like I forgot that I'm not on the same team," he said. "I was texting with Loon and asking him what he was eating and talking about Jiu-Jitsu training. And then, it's like, 'Oh, I forgot. We're not even on the same team anymore.' I laugh about that all the time."
