And on the surface, it made sense. The Heat are coming off two consecutive NBA Championships and Granger seemed like a relatively solid fit. Add in that he’d be able to likely take on his former team, the Indiana Pacers, in a playoff matchup with a trip to the NBA Finals on the line – seemed like a perfect scenario.
Both are said to have interest in the veteran forward, but Bill Ingram of Basketball Insiders believes the Spurs are a much better fit for Granger.
As much as I love Danny, his lack of defense would make Houston’s big problem even worse. I like Danny in San Antonio, where a great coach can cover up his defensive liabilities. We’re talking about the guy who successfully used Matt Bonner to guard Dwight Howard.
