First things first, Danny Granger has to be bought out from his current contract with the Philadelphia 76ers.
A few days ago, Granger’s NBA life was completely shaken. He went from playing for arguably the best team in the NBA to arguably the worst team in the league. Or, from the Indiana Pacers to the Philadelphia 76ers.
Reports have already come out that Granger “desires” to be bought out so he could sign with a contender, or simply a better situation, for the rest of this season — he becomes a free agent after this year.
Word, at least according to Real GM, is that the Sixers are going to give it their best effort in attempting to buyout Granger. If that happens, he’ll likely be able to sign with whomever he chooses for the rest of the season. And for the time being, the top of his wish list is the Miami Heat, Los Angeles Clippers, Chicago Bulls and Dallas Mavericks.
The Philadelphia 76ers and Danny Granger have been in discussions on a contract buyout and sources tells RealGM that management has given their complete cooperation.
Should Granger receive a buyout, sources tell RealGM that he will likely decide between the Miami Heat, Los Angeles Clippers, Chicago Bulls and Dallas Mavericks.
Granger was averaging 8.3 points per game this season for the Pacers before he was traded to the 76ers for Evan Turner and Lavoy Allen.
