    The Golden State Warriors have reached a verbal agreement on a four-year, $48 million contract with free agent Andre Iguodala after completing a salary-cap clearing trade with the Utah Jazz, according to ESPN and media reports.

    The Warriors had begun shopping contracts in hopes of creating enough cap space to try to sign free-agent center Dwight Howard, ESPN.com reported Thursday night. On Friday, though, it became apparent the Warriors were slipping in the Howard sweepstakes, so Golden State shifted to trade the expiring contracts of Richard Jefferson, Andris Biedrins and Brandon Rush to complete a deal with Iguodala.

    The Warriors found a match in the Utah Jazz, who will get a first-round pick in the highly anticipated 2014 draft, as well as the Warriors' first-rounder in 2017, to take on the salaries, according to Yahoo! Sports, which first reported the Iguodala deal.

    It was not immediately clear whether Golden State is now out of the Howard mix.
