Finally someone talking sense. Danny Granger is not the Danny Granger from 3 years ago. He has been injured every year, including this year. Hasn't showed he can play at a starter level at all....

They aren't great but he is a proven player. His PER is higher too.

I have to agree. Signing him is more of a risk to me, health is obviously a major question, but so is production. I'd be fine bringing him off the bench, but not sure he's a starter/ crunch time player anymore.

We have to sign someone else within 4 days, to be eligible for the playoff roster. So another signing should be comin soon for Doc and the Clippers. Hopefully it's Danny

Looks like the Heat players don't want him. Good for us.

Hopefully has his back up players to sign ready with such short amount of time.

With the way Beasley's been playing they don't need him or Butler. Think it'll be between us and SA.

At this point, I'd take him just to get Dudley out of the rotation. I don't really know how much he can contribute though.

Any news about Granger being buy out by sixers yet?

^real GM reported that its happening.

In my biased opinion, Danny would be a fool not to come here. We have 3 needs at the moment, wing defense, rebounding from the back court, and shooting from the wings. No other team can offer him a starting spot in a role tailor made for him. He comes here and has a good season, going up against the likes of Bat um, Durant, James, George, and Leonard while playing a role made for him, he'll command a JJ Redick like payday. He comes off the bench to relieve Lebron while chasing a ring, unless he REALLYreturns to form, he'll be more in the Dudley range.

DG was an AS and leading scorer for pacers before PG broke out, he is a different caliber of player and probably does not belong in the same sentence as duds, i don't see him being anywhere as bad as duds even coming off his recent injury

All we need Granger to do is play SOLID D and DRIVE to the hoop decisively.

How many Roster spots Are left 2. Could we Sign Meta and Granger (if he decides to be bought out)?

Maybe Lakers will buy out Chris Kaman. Granger and Kaman will fill out the roster nicely.

"The dislike for Granger apparently centers on the way Granger handled himself in the 2012 playoffs. Granger was very physical with LeBron James and nearly frustrated James to the point where the Pacers nearly won....

I remember that series and thought he did a good job. I've always felt that CP3's relationship with Heat players has hurt him a bit when playing them. If he were to play them the way he plays Vasquez we would do much better. If you get a guy like Granger to frustrate and give Lebron a hard time that is a bonus. It's not going to stop Lebron, but having him concerned with him is a start.

Danny is really stupid if he doesn't come play here. He lives in LA. Probable to start unlike Miami or OKC maybe Dallas. Former teammate in Darren Collison. Who woulndt this guy on their team. Veteran....

2 hours ago rumors had Heat as favorites Sad I'd think it would kind of be a cop out if he goes to heat. I've heard heat don't want him.. but we shall see.

I personally believe we have a good a chance as any team. Screw the rumors 80 percent of net rumors are bs anyway.

Jake Fischer @JakeLFischer

Anticipating a buyout from the Sixers, Danny Granger's camp views San Antonio as the small forward's top choice to sign with, per source.

Not sure what to make of this rumor, to be honest. Agents often namedrop the Spurs in order to make their players look more desirable without actually signing there, so this could be another one of those instances.

We obviously see here what positions need an upgrade. Granger would be just that. He is a Vet with playoff experience. Our C production is mostly blamed on Mullens and Hollins I would say DJ....

INSIDER (PS: we are not mentioned): Is Danny Granger fantasy-relevant anywhere other than Philly? Last week, we wrote that Granger could put up Mike Dunleavy Jr.-like numbers if he remained in Philadelphia for the remainder of the season. However, the chances of him staying with the Sixers appear to be slim. Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer writes that the 30-year-old swingman's status could be resolved by Tuesday. "Granger wants to play for an NBA championship contender, according to sources," Pompey wrote. "And there's a belief the Sixers will negotiate a buyout of what's left of his expiring contract (about $4 million) to....

What Did I Say? Location and Playing Time are factors in his signings and both factors favoring the Clippers at the Moment. Also Contention will be a factor as well

^Yea I don't think he wants to join us.I think the Spurs is where he lands.With their system and Leonard being injured it makes sense.Also Earl Clark is finalizing a deal with the Knicks so our options at getting another SF are getting shorter.

Well.... Are the Clippers true contenders in Danny Granger's Eye's? I sure hope so.

That seems directed at us. Compared to spurs and Miami, we aren't as much of a sure thing. We are more than dallas, which was also mentioned.

FWIW, I have a reliable source who says Granger's agent said he would "love to come to the Clippers."

Nothing against Dallas or the Bulls but if Granger thinks they are contenders and we aren't he's crazy.The Heat don't want him and OKC doesn't have a need for him.He could back up Durant but don't think he would get many minutes.The teams that make the most sense for him imo are Clippers and Spurs.With Leonard out Granger would get minutes for sure and his skill set works well with what the Spurs do.With us he would have to beat out Dudley and Barnes for playing time but how Dudley has been playing that wouldn't be hard.

Clippers is the best fit for Granger more playing time and a starter.

Danny Granger and Philly continue to discuss a buyout, but source says resolution might not come today

Sounds like they are taking their time

I thought caron wanted to finish his career in Wisconsin. Guess not. I'd even take him back he still is a great long range shooter.

I can't say, but the source has been pretty accurate with Clipper signings and trades.

That said, Spurs are probably still interested and who knows how much Granger is interested in them.

I have a reliable source who says he is most likely to chose the Spurs. However, he just may chose the clippers.

Oh ya the source is my mom...

With how Barnes has been playing lately, no to sure about the starter part
