The Denver Nuggets will get something back for Andre Iguodala after all.

The Nuggets have agreed to separate sign-and-trade deals that will land them guard Randy Foye from the Utah Jazz and send Iguodala to the Golden State Warriors, a person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press on Monday.

The Warriors had planned to sign Iguodala to a four-year, $48 million deal as a free agent last week, sources told ESPN. Instead, the restructured deal will give Golden State more salary cap flexibility, deliver Denver a $9 million trade exception and help Utah build for the future with expiring contracts and draft picks.

The person, who spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press on Monday because teams are not allowed to confirm moves until the new league year begins Wednesday, says the original Warriors-Jazz deal remains intact.

The Warriors will clear more than $24 million by sending Richard Jefferson, Andris Biedrins and Brandon Rush to the Jazz along with the package of draft picks. All three players are in the last year of their contracts.

Golden State is only taking back Kevin Murphy and his non-guaranteed $788,000 deal from Utah.

Yahoo! Sports, which earlier reported the new deal, said Foye will sign a three-year contract worth $9 million. Utah will receive multiple draft picks from Golden State, including its 2014 and 2017 first-round picks.

Denver also will get a trade exception worth about $9 million that it can use anytime within the next year. And in the meantime, soften the blow left in Iguodala's departure.
