The Miami Heat took forever to get any sort of movement on the free agent market but the wait seems to have been worth it. After hearing all weekend long about how LeBron James is fed up with the lack of action in the Miami front office, the Heat have gone out and signed free agent Danny Granger to a two-year contract.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski from Yahoo! Sports, the deal will only cost the Heat $4.2 million and gives Miami a viable chip to bring to the table whenever the meet with LeBron James this week.

There was reported interest from the Heat in Granger back in February when he was traded to the Philadelphia 76ers but boughtout rather promptly. The Los Angeles Clippers ended up getting him in time to put him on the playoff roster despite it not meaning much in the end.
For Miami, the signing is the first big signing of the offseason and coupled with the addition of Josh McRoberts, there is now something concrete the Heat can bring to the table when LeBron James asks for free agent progress.
