NBA Rumors: Indiana Pacers testing the market for Danny Granger

Just two years ago, Indiana Pacers’ forward Danny Granger was the face of the franchise, a big-time scorer and borderline All-Star.

After fighting through injuries in each of the last three seasons, Granger is now nothing more than a bench player with the Pacers and has had his position as the face of the team taken by a superior player in superstar swingman Paul George.

Granger has career averages of 17.6 points and 5.1 rebounds per game and has averaged over 20 points per game three times in his career.

If a team believes Granger, who is 30 years old, can regain some of his old form, the Pacers have discussed dealing him.

However, they have not been able to find a suitor willing to offer the kind of assets they want in return for Granger.

This season, Granger has appeared in 29 games and is averaging 8.3 points and 3.6 rebounds per game.
