    They never went in depth on what the full package was. But Haslem was part of what Philly wanted. Also never revealed "who" wanted "who". Did Miami call them, or did they call Miami? Either way, glad WE got Evan.

    Called that one. I really do think it's the best fit for Danny to get major minutes on a contender. With the PG's they have and the way they play I can see Danny's #'s going way up. I also think he'll improve a great deal as the season goes on. I wish him the best, if it's not us this year I hope it's the Clippers now.

    Well the only thing is that the Danny Granger appreciation game won't be until next season now. If he had joined Spurs, Bulls, or Heat there would've been a game but oh well, thems the brakes.

    Love Granger, but i'm at odds with this team. Chris Paul has always been overrated in my opinion just like Blake Griffin. Never been a fan of their games. Would hate to see those guys get a title. If they do I'm hoping Danny is the guy who pushes them over the top. Of course not against us.

    With picking up Big Baby and Danny the Clippers are loaded on the bench now for a playoff run. Doc has a lot to work with and I'd expect them to go far. We'd have a tough matchup if we meet them in the finals. Davis has always given Hibbert a hard time.

    Blake has really improved this year, I was before hoping for a Love/Griffin trade as I thought it would help both teams, but not anymore. I still think DeAndre Jordan's inability to be in games at the end really really hurts them. Blake has upped his FT shooting to a respectable level now.

    I couldn't stand Blake early on in his career, but I've really warmed up to him lately. You can tell he's worked a ton on his post game. He's using the glass much more often, he has developed counter-moves, and now he's finishing with either hand around the rim. He's also purged the flopping act. Just a lot more enjoyable to watch and root for.

    The Clips should be able to offer Danny playing time immediately, considering their injuries and lack of depth on the wings. I'm sure Danny will love playing with a point guard like CP3, a rim protector like DJ and a young stud like Blake. Doc's also one of the best coaches in the business. I wish Danny all the best in LA.

    I don't see him getting major minutes...at most, the same # of minutes as he got here. He's basically splitting minutes with Matt Barnes and Jared Dudley in the SG/SF rotation until Reddick and JCraw return.

    The Clippers don't have the best track record when it comes to signing broken down vets. This is the team that signed a fat Lamar Odom, a fat Stephen Jackson, and flirted with signing Odom again after he wasn't too far removed from burning rocks. This seems like a team that gets fooled by the name on the back of the jersey.

    I'm happy for Danny, and I'm happy for myself as a fan. I really didn't want to see him with an Eastern Conference team and he's on at least a quasi-contender out West. Hopefully he regains some of his form. Best of luck to you Danny.

    Guaranteed playing time was most likely part of the deal or at least it was reported that Granger was asking for this. Granger should outplay Barnes and Dudley right away and I wouldn't be surprised if he starts within a few games. Reddick and Crawford won't be playing much at the 3 so I think Granger will get as many minutes as he can handle.

    Danny Granger picks Clippers
    February 28, 2014
    RAMONA SHELBURNE via ESPN



    Ron Hoskins/Getty Images

    Former All-Star forward Danny Granger has decided to sign with the Los Angeles Clippers, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.
    The San Antonio Spurs, Houston Rockets, Miami Heat and Dallas Mavericks all made a run at Granger, but ultimately he chose the Clippers late Thursday night because they offered him the best opportunity to play meaningful minutes for a contender.

    Granger is expected to clear waivers at 5 p.m. ET Friday. He was officially waived Wednesday after completing a contract buyout with the Philadelphia 76ers. The Sixers had acquired him from the Indiana Pacers just before the trade deadline for Evan Turner and Lavoy Allen.
    If no team claims Granger, 30, he can sign with the Clippers. Granger already was in Los Angeles on Thursday and worked out at a local gym, according to a source.

    Granger hopes to play Saturday when the Clippers host the Pelicans, a source said.

    By signing with the Clippers, he will become the second veteran player coach and senior vice president of player personnel Doc Rivers has recruited to the team in a week. Last week Rivers outrecruited several other teams to sign forward Glen Davis, after he was bought out by the Orlando Magic. Davis played for Rivers in Boston, where they won the 2008 NBA championship and lost in the 2010 Finals.

    The Clippers traded Byron Mullens and Antawn Jamison last week to create roster spots to pursue players such as Granger and Davis, who were likely to be bought out. They also backed out of late trade discussions with the New York Knicks for injured swingman Iman Shumpert and guard Raymond Felton. Both decisions look prescient a week later.

    Granger played in 29 games with the Pacers this season as he made his way back from knee and calf injuries. He averaged 8.3 points in 22 minutes a game, but his career average is 17.6 points a game. He was in the final year of a contract that paid him $14 million this year and will be a free agent after the season.

    Granger keeps an offseason home in Los Angeles and has been known to train at the Clippers' practice facility in the summer.
    ESPN reported Wednesday that the Clippers had nudged ahead of the Spurs as the favorites to land Granger and that they had stepped up their pursuit at least partly because of growing concern within the organization about the status of guard J.J. Redick, who has missed the past nine games and is out indefinitely with a back injury.

    Don't have a strong view about the Clippers either way, just glad he didn't chose Miami!

    Caron Butler chose OKC. Good to see the Heat come up empty with the 3 big names that were dropped: Granger, Butler, Davis

    Did anybody else hear Chick McGee on Bob and Tom this morning talking about this? It sounded like he was implying that Danny was "like that uncle that causes trouble and nobody likes, and everyone can't wait until the aunt divorces him so he won't be in the family anymore..."
    I've never seen anybody feel like that about Danny, but he implied Danny was like that at least twice in that little segment.. it was really weird..

    Who is Chick McGee and why does it matter what he/she says? Anyone who has payed attention at all to the Pacers since Danny has been here know that isn't true. Bird said Danny is one of his favorite players, Paul looked up to him as his mentor, and he seemed to have a great relationship with all of the players and coaches. Who is his/her source? Posey? Murphy? Dunleavy? Coach Evil?

    I highly doubt that Chick has been around this team enough to make that implication. Although, if he was referring to the "Trade Grangerites" over the last few years, I could see his analogy.....
