Andre Iguodala got exactly what he wanted after trying every negotiation tactic in the book.

Iguodala announced Saturday that he will return to the Golden State Warriors on a reported three-year, $48-million contract. The deal is fully guaranteed and holds no options.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr and general manager Bob Myers met with Iguodala on Saturday night after the veteran briefly entertained overtures from the San Antonio Spurs and the Houston Rockets.

The Warriors have now re-signed three of their four major free-agent targets. Signing Stephen Curry to a super max was a no-brainer, while inking Shaun Livingston at a below-market deal was some tidy business. Negotiations with Iguodala were more of a struggle, however.

Iguodala was firing cryptic tweets about his contract just minutes before agreeing to the deal.
