Now that veteran forward Danny Granger has finally agreed to an official buyout with the Philadelphia 76ers after being traded to the 76ers by the Indiana Pacers in exchange for guard Evan Turner and big man Lavoy Allen last week, Granger can pick his next team.
The San Antonio Spurs are very interested in Granger and it originally appeared as though they may the favorites to sign him.
However, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, it looks like the Los Angeles Clippers are the favorite.
The Los Angeles Clippers have emerged as the frontrunners to sign forward Danny Granger, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
Once Granger clears waivers in the next 48 hours, the Clippers’ ability to offer him significant playing time and championship contention under coach Doc Rivers makes them the most attractive destination, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
The Clippers have already reached an agreement with another veteran who was bought out in former Orlando Magic power forward Glen “Big Baby” Davis.
Granger is averaging 8.3 points, 3.6 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game this season.
