Report: Danny Granger Agrees to Deal with the Miami Heat


Everyone was wondering when Pat Riley and the Miami Heat would start making their move in free agency and it appears that day has come.

According to NBA Insider Adrian Wojnarowski, free agent Danny Granger has agreed to join the Miami Heat on a two-year, $4.2 million contract. The deal includes a player option on the second season.

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.

    This makes sense if Granger had surgery to remove the fork from his back.

      We just have to hope that he can get back to old form! Could possibly be a steal with the money he received.

        Of course. But I can’t remember seeing a player spend that much time out of the game, have multiple surgeries, come back while clearly not physically right, and revert to being a quality NBA player.

        The medical records must show something that was 100% invisible on the tape.

          Shaun Livingston came back from one of the ugliest injuries I’ve ever seen – not saying it’s going to happen often because it is very rare but it is possible. If the Big Three all come back (we hope) then he will (probably) be coming off the bench with guys like Napier, Allen, McRoberts, Haslem, etc. I think he fits in nicely for the role he would be asked to have all things considered.

            Difference is that Livingston was under 25 when the injury happened, and when he came back he looked like he needed to get better at basketball, not like he needed to get healthier.

            Granger didn’t look like it was a rust thing. He looked like his (presumably) healed body just couldn’t do it any more.

            hope i’m wrong.

            Grant Hill came back from many more injuries and looked really bad fro years and then revived himself til he was 40!
