All the things we could've had but passed on are working out. Kyrie, Paul George, Granger... a couple could've been traded off for Chris Paul. Either that or this CP3 & Griffin team would've never happened with those players in the lineup already. Even Elton Brand leaving might've gotten us Blake Griffin.

The Clippers will now move swiftly to bring in a 3 point shooting specialist who looks like, walks like, and shoots like JJ Redick. Or as least as close as they can get. Ben Gordon is a career 40% from the 3 but is only shooting 27% this year. Sasha is a career 37% from the 3, but is rusty having not played in the NBA for awhile. Sasha has playoff experience and has been to the finals twice. He brings some more jewelry into the locker room. Who will they sign. Doc knows.

"It was the second time this week that Granger and Rivers spoke.

The first time was when Granger called Rivers to express his interest in the Clippers."

Looks like Granger made the first move. Very Happy

Blake and CP3 didn't want to talk about Danny Granger until he officially joins the team, which should happen after 2pm.

I hearing a lot of talk about Butler will benefit okc more than Granger would with us... could it be the hate! I feel that if it was the other way around it'll be a different story.

Yeah I'm pretty sure that besides Caron's rare game where he's en fuego, he's a net negative. Although he does help OKC in the toughness department. Too bad 1 Butler doesn't make up for a whole team of bitches.

Of course it's not, it's just only in the media, he can't sign to any team yet until 2 pm today. But I think it's almost official. 3 hours from now, we all know.

This is huge if he really is signing with us. I'm trying not to get excited until it's official. We all need to pray that he ends up the starter, if he's not starting within a couple weeks it means he might be a bust. He couldn't end up at a better situation, a great team with two stars and an absolutely horrible rotation at his position.

Great for us. If we could only get completely healthy at some point, this is a very tough team to beat in the PO's.

I feel like some people may overrated his value. He is good, but not that great. I think he's more of a shooter to us than he was couple years ago. Maybe I'm wrong, but I have to see it myself after the first game.

If JJ comes back, I'll have some confidence in this team even if the SF position isn't solid yet. BG at the elbow with the threat of JJ running around while CP3 is dribbling up, it's just too much for the opponent, especially when ppl know how good Griffin is now.

Just watched video with Danny - so stoked. Physically it is nice to have a 3 that is big and strong but not bulky. He would guard Durant and Leonard and parsons.

Granger could possibly have physical today and be ready to play Saturday. I am really excited. I do not expect much from Granger ,but anything he give us is a plus. Hopefully this means no....

This is so exciting for the Clippers! What a difference 8 days can make. Clippers now have Glen Davis and Danny Granger instead of Byron Mullens and Antawn Jamison. Wow, this must be an alternate reality, lol, and a great one at that. Well done, Doc!

Unbelievable to get these two guys. No matter what Granger has left, he should be a huge improvement over Barnes/Duds. He gives us flexibility at the 4 as well, yet another option in small ball lineups.

So we basically took the two best players in the buyout market. and both at positions of need. Great pickups, almost doesn't seem fair!

FINALLY OFFICIAL!!!!!! this made my day. Let's GO!!!!!

Granger and Davis were two major holes we needed to fill. Damn it's almost too good to be true.

He's going to help, we're just glad they picked up a player who can help.

Wonder if Doc already had the team practice today or will later tonight so Granger could join in? Either way everyone should get a good run tomorrow. After the Pelicans game we get two days off for more practice and then the Suns on the road. Doc should be pushing at practice everyday.

They already had practice today - doc wasn't there but he will be coaching tomorrow. My guess is danny plays a few minutes like big baby on Wednesday.

Just to give him a taste of the team and let him wade in.

I don't care that Dudley is statistically better. My eyes tell me otherwise. And yes ,clips seem to inspire massive jealousy all the time

They had practice but Doc wasn't there due to personal reasons. I'm sure Doc knows how much practice to push. All is in good hands.

Dudley can shoot more so from the the mid range but the major problem he was so freaking passive. It's not even passing bad looks into better ones majority of the time the clock in winding down and he gets the best look and passes to a guy being defended. Just seemed to be such a lack of confidence in himself that he frustrated his teammates by not shooting and Paul has yelled at him a couple of times already for it.

Ah, the old eyes trick. Anyway, welcome abroad Danny. Hope there's a little magic left in the tank.

Danny will be fine - I am a little impressed that barnes managed to get his PER into double digits in recent days. Now 2/4 small forwards have double digit PER

That Kurt guy's tweet is funny. When you have the likes of the Spurs, Thunder, and Heat interested in signing the guy and you get him, it's a WIN.

Not gonna say he's a huge improvement over either Barnes or Dudley, but his size should help improve the perimeter defense if even for a little. His size and athletic advantage over Dudley should make defenses work a bit harder as well.

I think most of us are aware than Big Baby is the more impactful acquisition.

I still think Granger could be a high reward guy. We will see.
