The Philadelphia 76ers have freed Danny Granger from having to play for them at all this season, and as a result, the newly bought out Sixth Man is getting some serious attention from other teams. There had been rumors about who would get into contact with Granger about a contract, but we now have a more concrete idea of who is in and who is out.
According to Marc J. Spears from Yahoo! Sports, the Bulls, Rockets, Heat and Clippers are all having phone conversations with Granger today about signing him as soon as possible.

The Bulls don’t want to go into the tax to sign Granger and the Heat may opt to sign Caron Butler instead. The Clippers just signed Glen Davis too, which leave the Rockets as maybe the best option for Granger. All four teams are in on the fee agent though, and it will be interesting to see where he lands.
