Danny Granger was "pissed" when he learned he was traded to the Sixers, per league source.

Many around the league expect Danny Granger to sign with either the Miami Heat or San Antonio Spurs once the Sixers buy him out.

I bet he is pissed, he went from the best team record-wise in the East to the 2nd worst. He'd been with that team his whole career, helped them get better and stuck around until they're finally a legit title contender while he's healthy and boom, he's gone. But hey, it's a business, the Pacers made a smart move to possibly get even better. If he goes to the Heat though, I doubt his former teammates will be rooting for his success.

^absolutely agree

he was there when they were terrible. he got an injury, and now that they're good, he got dropped. that really sucks :\
on the flip side, it was pretty apparent that he has nothing to really offer the current pacers squad and has played poorly alongside his team. i wish he got a real chance to work with them for a bit longer though.

I think I'd be pissed if I was him too.
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

He was not going to come back and they made what looks like a good move. It's a business. I hope he goes to SA.... I think, if healthy, he can be a huge asset to them if/when they meet the Heat. He plays Bron as well as anyone I've ever seen. That is what was missing last year....... well that and a couple free throws....

i feel bad for him. he had been there through all the tough times only to be traded during the best season they've had in a while

but hey that's pro sports. it would be interesting to see it go down in the ECF if he does sign with the heat

bad situation for him but on the bright side he's probably about to get a fat buyout check and the ability to go to any team he wants

Now he basically gets to pick which team he wants to try to beat them with. Good for him.

In the word of Hoodie Allen,

"...Got a bedroom full of strangers
I ain't talking Danny Granger but I'm running out of Pacers."

I guess he has finally run out of Pacers.

Always amazes me every year at this point that some teams, Clips included this year, seem to sign player after player after player. And then sign more players. What the hell, are these teams operating with 8 man rosters before all these signings?

^^^ Really! With adding Davis and Granger did they have to release anyone, you would think? Was Jamison released or involved in a trade a couple days ago?

Jamison was traded to atlanta. Mullens was traded too, so i guess they had roster spots

So Antawn how did you enjoy burning 2 of the last years of your career in L.A.? A danger of ring chasing.
