Danny Granger is yet to play in a game this season due to a knee injury, and there have been rumors that the Indiana Pacers would be willing to trade the team’s leading scorer. The fact that Granger has not made an appearance this season made a trade before the deadline seem unlikely.
However, it seems that the Pacers are still willing to part ways with the small forward who is owed a hefty $14 million next season, according to Hoopsworld:
Now, the Pacers seem willing to trade Granger if the right offer comes along. One executive made it clear that Granger could be dealt in the next 24 hours because the Pacers no longer view him as untouchable.
While Granger is still not playing, he is participating in practices and is close to a return. It is uncertain whether the Pacers would get any kind of mind-blowing deal in return for the team’s star, but with Paul George leading the way, any kind of complimentary piece would be a nice acquisition.
Granger is a very capable player, but it is hard seeing anyone come up with a legitimate offer for him. If the Pacers could get some expiring contracts and draft picks in return for him, it would not be surprising if they pulled the trigger.
