Once Danny Granger was traded from the Indiana Pacers, along with a couple of picks, to the Philadelphia 76ers for guard Evan Turner and power forward Lavoy Allen, it seemed inevitable the 76ers would buy him out so they could continue their losing ways.
Once the two sides agreed to a buyout, Granger could not officially sign with a new team until Friday.
The Los Angeles Clippers immediately went after Granger and received a verbal agreement.
On Friday afternoon, they made it official.
The Los Angeles Clippers announced today that they have signed free agent forward Danny Granger. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Granger, 30, appeared in 29 games (two starts) this season with the Indiana Pacers averaging 8.3 points, 3.6 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 22.6 minutes per game. He played his entire eight-year NBA career with the Pacers. He holds career averages of 17.6 points, 5.1 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 544 games (425 starts) over 32.5 minutes per game.
The Clippers also excitedly announced Granger has appeared in 22 playoff games, making 19 stars and averaging 15.6 points and 5.5 rebounds per game.
