Indiana is not running a "not enough basketballs to go around offense" right now, lol so his role will be what it always has been......score points. I am really excited about possibly getting him back. I think for the people that are worried about it potentially hindering PGs continued growth that you need not be. Danny's presence will put a dilemma on a lot of teams for example the Bulls.....with our current line up they would obviously have Deng on PG, Hamilton (if he's healthy) on Lance....but with a Granger line up Deng would most likely be forced to defend Danny and it'd leave PG matched up with Hamilton. Teams will run into situations like this a lot and it will only help create better scoring opportunities for PG. This will also give us more of an opportunity to see how PG has grown as a player in using his length to his advantage on the court, teams will be forced to defend him with smaller 2 guards on a much more regular basis and hopefully PG can continue to use his size to his advantage. He may not necessarily get the volume of scoring opportunities he is getting now, but the scoring opportunities he does get should be better ones. The main thing that Granger brings is free throw attempts, something hopefully PG continues to improve on. The Pacers were a poor FG% team last season as well but they scored a solid amount of points per game because they shot a lot more free throws than our opponents and we offensive rebounded well. So if Danny is still able to attack the basket like he was his added free throw attempts will be huge for our offense.
