76ers release statement on Danny Granger


The wedding between the Philadelphia 76ers and Danny Granger was officially annulled this afternoon when it was announced that the team completed a buy out for the former All-Star.

As the news broke, the 76ers released the following statement about the situation.

“His accomplishments and accolades to this point of his NBA career more than speak for themselves, so I would like to express that I have a great deal of respect for Danny Granger as a person.  The manner with which he carried himself throughout this process was professional, courteous and respectful, and speaks volumes about his character.

 

“Following the completion of the trade on Thursday night, Danny traveled to Philadelphia and we had an opportunity to meet with him here. These were in addition to the open lines of communication with his agent Aaron Mintz and CAA while we worked through the next steps.

 

“Given Danny’s future goals and his desire to pursue them, we worked to fulfill his requests and have come to a resolution that we feel is mutually beneficial to both Danny and our organization.

 

“We wish Danny the best in the next phase of his career.”

 

Granger is now expected to sign with either the San Antonio Spurs or the Los Angeles Clippers.
