Granger began the 2013-2014 season as a member of the Indiana Pacers before being shipped off to the Philadelphia 76ers in a trade for Evan Turner. Following a buyout, Granger signed and then finished the season with the Los Angeles Clippers.
Despite being limited to a backup role the last few years because of injury concerns, Granger is a former NBA All-Star and who has averaged an impressive 17.4 points per game over his nine year career. He figures to give the Heat some instant scoring off the bench.
