Report: Danny Granger set to speak with five teams before making decision


Danny Granger is going to enjoy February free agency as much as possible.

After all, when was the last time that he was this much of a wanted man?

According to Yahoo, Granger is set to meet, or talk, with five teams before he decides on where to sign for the rest of this season.

NBA free agent-to-be Danny Granger is scheduled to have phone conversations with the Miami Heat, San Antonio Spurs, Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Clippers and the Chicago Bulls on Thursday, a source told Yahoo Sports.

Yahoo Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski reported Wednesday that the Clippers are the frontrunner to land Granger, who joins Caron Butler as two coveted free-agent forwards available. Additionally, Los Angeles signed free-agent forward Glen “Big Baby” Davis to a contract for the remainder of the season last Sunday.

Granger is officially the LeBron James of Feb free agency, and is expected to officially become a free agent on Friday after he clears waivers. Granger and the Philadelphia 76ers agreed to a buyout agreement on Wednesday, less than a week after being traded from the Indiana Pacers for Lavoy Allen, Evan Turner and a second round pick.

The favorites to land the former All-Star forward remain to be the Clippers.
