LA Clippers favorites to sign Danny Granger

Published Add your comment

Danny Granger has been officially waived by the Philadelphia 76ers.

The highly anticipated move following Granger's deadline day trade from the Indiana Pacers, will alert many of the NBA's top teams.

But according to Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski the LA Clippers are the frontrunners at this points, as per league sources:

"The Clipper's ability to offer him significant playing time and Championship contention under coach Doc Rivers makes him them the most attractive destination."

Granger, who had spent ten seasons with the Pacers before his recent switch, is likely to attract attention from other top teams too though, and would be a useful option to have at small forward heading into the business end of the season.

At present the 30-year old is in the final year of a $14 million contract and has endured a difficult season to this point - averaging 8.3 points in 22 minutes in Indiana.

But this ability to remain a team player in a star packed roster makes him an attractive option to those teams challenging for the title.

San Antonio Spurs, the Heat, Bulls and Rockets have reportedly also showed interest in recent times and are expected to make contact in the coming days.
