They can fulfill a lot of similar functions, but I don't think he is a Scottie Pippen type player. He can facilitate an offense when given the ball, but he cannot create shots. He isn't a second option. He's not even a guy I'd want as a third option. He's a non-option. That is why it is so hard to utilize him offensively. How do you exploit his passing and court leadership without putting the ball in his hands? If you put the ball in his hands, how do you run an effective offense? He's easy to defend.
I think the best way to use Iguodala is to give him the leadership to a second unit while utilizing him in a Trevor Ariza type role when he is in there with the first team.

I think both of you are a bit overboard with the elite/fantastic D assessment as well, and although I probably understated it with 'above-average' I could be corrected to well-above-average. Iggy was 2nd team all-D this year barely (least votes that made it) and I would easily argue that spot should have gone to Gerald Wallace had he been on either Portland or the Cats for the entire season. Still think Iggy/Odom is equal in trade value when contract$/contract length/age/skill are all calibrated, with 'fit' (contending team, rebuilding team, etc) being the real issue.
