Over the course of the last week, the Indiana Pacers have been hearing more and more trade rumors involving forward Danny Granger, but they’re not letting the trade talks get to them. Indiana has crafted a brilliant roster and the front office has demonstrated they know what they’re doing, which is why it’s of little surprise to Pacers fans that the team is not interested in dealing Danny Granger before the deadline.

According to Chris Broussard from ESPN.com, the Pacers aren’t close minded to the idea of trading Granger, but they’d need to be blown away by an offer from another team in order to agree to parting ways with Granger.

The team is pretty loaded on the depth chart when it comes to talent, but the trick is how to keep that talent in town. Lance Stephenson expiring contract has a lot of Pacers fans wondering if he’ll be able to come back for the 2014-15 season.

The Pacers are focused on one thing though, and that’s winning a championship. Trading Granger might help down the road, but having him on roster for the postseason is something the team must be deeming far more valuable.

    I think they are counting on him to be more of the Granger of old by the end of the season which will help the Pacers in the playoffs. Granger will want to be at his best then to get a new contract when he hits the market. hopefully it works out for both of them.
