With a reputation of being injury prone and a $14 million dollar expiring contract, Danny Granger knows the writing is on the wall. The Indiana Pacers may trade him.
The eight year veteran, who has played over 67 games just once in the past five years, has all but been replaced in Indiana by Paul George, something Granger is well aware of.
As our own Vytis Lasaitis wrote earlier Granger is fine no longer being “the man” but is aware the Pacers and he have a business relationship and the Indiana franchise has to do what’s best for them, which very well could be moving Granger.
Per Granger, via David Aldridge:
I’ve been here my whole career. I look at things objectively, and it’s very rare for a player to stay with a team his whole career. It just don’t happen. So when the trade talks come, you can say, okay, it’s my time to go. I love the organization and I had a great time here [but] we understand it’s a business. You get older and you move on. That’s just the way it is. There’s no hard feelings about it; you don’t get your feelings hurt. I take it as a business arrangement, basically.
