The Philadelphia 76ers have yet to buyout Danny Granger and there’s still a bit of uncertainty if such a move will be made.
Some have suggested that Granger attempt to re-establish his value with the Sixers and head into free agency showing he can still play. Others have hinted his best move would be to agree on a buyout and sign with a contender.
We’ll likely know what move Granger opts for in the coming hours/days, but if he is bought out the Miami Heat are expected to show interest in signing the veteran. It’s also where Yannis Koutroupis of Basketball Insiders believes Granger will sign.
I think Granger ends up in Miami. San Antonio makes some sense too, but I honestly think that Metta World Peace is the better option for them.
Granger should get some run with the Heat and few teams have a better opportunity for an NBA Championship than Miami.
It also gives Granger the opportunity to burn his former team, who he’s not exactly happy with given the last second trade sending him to Philadelphia.
