I know as fans this seems like an easy decision. But he has a lot more to think about. Location, money, state taxes, contention, weather, demographic, night life, management, ownership etcetera etcetera etcetera ...

Its not as easy as it was for Big Baby. Granger has a lot to worry about. This isn't something players do for fun. Its their job. They have to provide for their family and....

A misconception that seems to come up a bit, but Pop hasn't been a GM since the early 2000's, over 10 years now I believe, R.C. Buford is the Spurs GM.

    R. C. Buford is the general manager of the San Antonio Spurs NBA basketball team. He was given the title by his predecessor, Gregg Popovich, in 2002 after five seasons as team president. He is also the president of sports franchises for Spurs Sports & Entertainment.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R._C._Buford

    The Spurs finally placed their general manager, R.C. Buford, on this year's basketball-analytics panel, the first time a team official has spoken at the event.

    Buford suggested that San Antonio's investment in analytics fell somewhere short of having a platoon of mathematics PhDs locked in a room doing research, but involved study of whether the numbers backed the intuitions of head coach Gregg Popovich, such as the idea that three-point shots taken from the corner of the court are desirable. (Indeed, statistics show they are the highest-efficiency shot in basketball.)

    "[Popovich] got interested when the data supported him," said Buford, who also made clear that the Spurs have used analytics to try to upgrade their defense this season.

Also, how you phrase it makes it seem like Granger left Indiana, no, he got traded, and he wasn't happy about getting traded, so I guess he didn't mind the role too much. A stretch 4 role actually isn't a bad option as he gets older, he would probably be used a little in the role here too, or at least would be if we didn't get Hedo.

Since we got the guys that we were after, can we please sign Cuttino Mobley to our final roster spot so he can win a chip with the Clips?

Seems legit but I won't believe it until I see him talking to Maddy B.At 30 I don't think Granger is done.He might not be what he was but I think he can still contribute in the right situation.Hope it all works out and we get to see him play Saturday against the Pelicans.

Another scorer who doesn't play defense and isn't shooting well this season, sounds familiar.

They all got it from her. That's how all these "insiders" work.

Good news to hear on a day like this.. This roster is getting legitimately better by the day.. I still think we need 1 more quality big to round out the roster...

Well, who should we have gotten to replace Mullens and Jamison for the minimum? Help me understand.

Great news!

Its incredible to think that Doc managed to turn Jamison and Mullens to Big Baby and Granger, with some help of course. People can criticize Doc for some of his front office moves but his presence and influence alone is attracting free agents to come here. Well, having Blake and CP3 also helps.

The last 22 games will be huge for the new guys to gel with the team and hopefully the team will hit their strides heading into the playoffs.

Puddn that's false. Granger's shooting has sucked but he STILL is a very good rebounder and defender.

Even if he can't play at the high level that we expect from him, Granger's presence alone might be able to light a fire in Barnes and or Dudley.

Very good news! I wonder if Danny Granger will start or come off the bench, and who will be the odd man out (likely Dudley?) The extra depth means if one guy is struggling, there's the third guy waiting in the wing. Another option is that Jamal could go back to the bench for now, and Barnes can take over the starting SG spot, while Granger can start at SF.

Imagine a Tribe Called Bench with Big Baby, Collison, Barnes in his natural habitat, JCross and change patrolling the sidelines... Sweet smell of Winning!

Smart idea. That sounds perfect until JJ gets back. That way Barnes and Dudley won't feel too stressed and this signing won't affect team chemistry with this roster decision.

Imagine if we're full strength, who do you prefer?

Bledsoe, J-Craw, Barnes, LO, Hollins/Turiaf

vs.

Collison, J-Craw, Dudley, Granger, Big Baby Davis

I think the greatest asset out of Granger is his defense and long wing spans. We need a guy like that to defend the likes of Harden, Durant, and etc.

Short term I think Barnes keeps his starting job, Dudley becomes our backup PF like he was in the game against OKC and parts of last night's game, Davis is the backup center and Granger is backup SF. Hollins and Turkoglu probably play very little. Neither Barnes or Dudley have played SG this year, but they both have in the past, so it's possible one of those guys takes minutes from Green/Bullock as well. Depending how well each of Barnes, Dudley and Granger play things can be adjusted from there.

I would definitely choose Dudley to be the player who gets left out of the lineup. I'm not a big fan of using 3 different guys for one position as the playoffs get closer. That would just mean that the 2 who deserve the minutes would have to sacrifice playing time and wouldn't be able to get in a rhythm.

I say we stick to a 9 man rotation in:

CP3

Redick (seeing that he's healthy)

Barnes

Blake

DJ

Jamal

Collison

Granger

and Big Baby

(Leaving Dudley any left over minutes whenever someone gets injured or into foul trouble.)
