"Only makes me work harder," Rush tweeted.

The Warriors had been chasing Iguodala for years, but the right move never came together until now.

General manager Bob Myers had said all along that despite the team's perceived salary cap restrictions that a big-time free agent could be signed this summer. The Warriors also will renounce their rights to restricted free agent guard Jarrett Jack to clear space for Iguodala — a price they believe is more than enough for his addition, which could push standout rookie Harrison Barnes into a reserve role, albeit a leading one.

Jack had helped the Warriors go from a 23-43 team during the lockout-shortened season to a 47-35 team last year, earning the conference's sixth seed and upsetting Denver in the first round. But mounting injuries wore the Warriors down and the eventual Western Conference champion San Antonio Spurs sent Golden State home in six games.

"Well," Jack wrote on Twitter, "it was fun while it lasted."
