The Indiana Pacers traded Danny Granger to the Philadelphia 76ers before the trade deadline passed a week ago, but it appears that he may not last in Philly much longer. While Granger is reportedly considering all of his options, teams are already circling the tank to see if he drops down to be fought over in free agency.
According to Marc Stein from ESPN.com, the Miami Heat looked poised to sign Caron Butler which means that the race for Danny Granger is down to the Los Angeles Clippers and San Antonio Spurs.

Both the Clippers and Spurs have ben previously mentioned in connection with Granger, but he needs to first be bought out for any chatter to matter. Right now it is still a 50-50 proposition that the Sixers and Granger part ways, but if he’s bought out and hits the market, he won’t be out of work long and will be quickly employed be a title contender.
