Danny Granger would be a god-send for the Clippers. Still a lot of hurdles to clear for that to happen.

As soon as I saw that the 76ers traded for him, I assumed he would be bought out and I was just saying "please get on this".

He hasn't played specifically well, but we know he is a talented player. The knee tendonitis / tendonosis sort of killed him the past couple of seasons.

May need him to meet minimum team salary requirements.

Ahh yes, I forgot that they basically traded away all their players

I'm pretty sure he's the younger brother of frank18. Very well respected within the Frank Family.

Well, he's not an impostor if that's what you're thinking... this is REAL frank13!

We need to be patience as in the next week more buyouts will be surfacing as to give vets a chance to hook on to some teams before the PO's.

Must be coming in to back up Blake hopefully he can stay healthy always loved his game. I much rather the SF rotation be Bullock and Turk and have the other two go away. Maybe Barnes covering at SF and Bullock at 2 until JJ comes back.

I hope they bring in Ivan, and Granger. Then maybe bring back Odom for the playoffs as an extra big.

This is also true, especially since we didn't end up moving any SF's, so we would have a glut at SF.

Odom is done, gone to Spain

That can't be true, I've been told over and over on Clipper forums this year that knee tendonitis is a minor injury that shouldn't cause an NBA player to struggle.

It's a short contract, ends mid April, he could signed at the last second like McGrady was last year.

See no way both come to split minutes amongest themselves while Blake is playing 30+mpg a night and Hedo at point forward and having three SF's already.One of them works because Turk will become a bench warmer and maybe Blake takes all C minutes when DJ sits.

I hope they also get Granger but Miami is also interested and who knows what route Granger takes.

Tough week to wait for ten days and buyouts with tough games ahead. Figuring out the overcrowding at the Forward spots will be a battle in itself. Waiting for JJ and hoping things pan out very tiring and deflating day.

Vets can sign for a new team only if they're waived by March 1st.

If Danny Granger is bought out; what options are available to sign Granger? Do we have to pay the minimum? Can we cut someone to make room (Barnes and Dudley are on multi-year contracts), how would we go about this? Is it even a possibility?

Dude is coming off an injury , but man can we use him. Can anyone tell me if this guy plays defense? I only saw him guard Blake and he did a decent job. The....

Hope we are able to get Granger if he is bought out.He isn't in his prime anymore but if healthy he fits in perfectly.He is a very good scorer.He isn't an elite defender but if he can get healthy he is solid defensively.If he can't get healthy we didn't give anything up for him so I think he is a no risk,high reward player.

We are at the league minimum right now 12 players. We can sign 3 more. If he passes though waivers he becomes a FA. No ned to cut anyone.

Sorry, I meant in regards to salary. Can we only give him the minimum? Miami still has that mini mid level I think. Would hate to lose him to them.

I believe we were 1.9 mil below the hard cap before the trades, so it looks like we can afford a bit more. Depends if we stay at 13 or 14 players I guess.

The clippers need defense not another scorer. The one thing Danny Granger doesn't do well and that's defense.

Oops, I stand corrected. I was thinking of the time allotted to get to the minimum.

No...we need to get something, anything out of that position. I guarantee granger is a huge upgrade offensively and probably one defensively. Right now that position is a black hole.

He's shooting 36% this year, he's been struggling. He'd be basically a third Barnes/Dudley, someone who used to be better that you hope returns to form. He's probably worth the risk anyway, but he's far from a sure thing.

Okafor's out for the rest of the year. Looks like the Suns didn't trade his contract either, so I think he'll be a free agent this coming summer.

Anyone have a list of players expected to be bought out? Any chance the Jazz buyout Jefferson or Marv? Sounds like Caron Butler is very likely to be bought out and wants to go to Miami. Kaman probably has a good chance of being let go.

Next week we'll be an interesting time as vets from non-PO teams begin to line up on that buy out line. We need a little patience and see what falls from that tree.

If you have a busted wheel you can't function. A bad knee is muy importante

Why do a lot of buyout happen around this time?

Another chronic case of knee tendonitis after the year Dudley has had.....Sure, I'd pick him up for minimum, but I don't expect a lot out of him.

Because if they can't trade them, then it would be cheaper to buy them out before their contracts get fully guaranteed by march 1st i believe.
