It isn't like Granger is some ultra-efficient scoring machine, and Iguodala is an offensive liability.
Granger has scored about 5 more points game on a per-36 basis for his career, but he has needed 4 more field goal attempts to do it.
Over the course of their careers, Granger has scored 1.30 points per shot. Iguodala has scored 1.32 points per shot.
If you look beyond simple points per game, you'll see that there isn't much of a difference when it comes to which player is the better scorer. The other things that Iggy contributes are what puts him over the top.
