With reports coming in that Danny Granger won’t be with the Philadelphia 76ers for long, many potential teams are being linked to the services of the small forward.
The Miami Heat, Los Angeles Clippers, San Antonio Spurs, and yes, the Dallas Mavericks have all been rumored to the have interest in Granger.
The Mavericks currently have Shawn Marion, Vince Carter, and Jae Crowder at the small forward spot, so interest in Granger comes to a small surprise. Mavericks were linked to Luol Deng and even Evan Turner during the trade deadline.
Before any teams can pursue Granger, he and the 76ers must agree to a buyout.
Granger, 30, has seen his numbers drastically dip after knee surgeries/issues the last two seasons.
He’s averaged 8.3 points in 29 games (2 starts) this season for the Indiana Pacers.
Last season he was limited to just 5 games and averaged 5.4 points.
Granger was the 17th overall pick by the Pacers during the 2005 draft. He hold career averages of 17.6 points and 5.1 rebounds.
Granger was traded to Philly for Evan Turner and Lavoy Allen during the NBA trade deadline.
Other notable buyout candidates at the small forward position are Metta World Peace (rumored to have already agreed to a buyout) and Caron Butler.
