5 Potential Landing Spots for Danny Granger

After a tumultuous season that saw him under contract with three different teams, Danny Granger has undoubtedly fallen from his glory days with the Indiana Pacers. He's still a more than competent player, however, and should have some choices to make when signing a new contract as an unrestricted free agent this offseason. Here are five places he could land when it's all said and done.

After his trade to Philadelphia and the subsequent buyout freeing him from obligations to the woeful 76ers, Granger signed with the Los Angeles Clippers. Granger performed fairly well in the city of angels, averaging roughly 18 points per 36 minutes. L.A. is the epitome of a team in transition, but it is hungry for a championship and so is Granger. Don't be surprised to see him wear a Los Angeles jersey once again.

After a surprisingly competitive season, the Phoenix Suns could be looking to break into the playoffs in 2015. Granger would be a great resource for the Arizona club as a consistent shooter who converted on about 43 percent of his chances in Los Angeles. Pairing him with Goran Dragic could help the Suns climb back into relevancy in the hyper-competitive Western Conference.

3. Miami Heat

The Heat, a team forced to get creative with their signings after filling their salary cap with the Big 3's big contracts, have shown they have no problem signing once bright stars who have had injury problems (see: Greg Oden). If Granger cares about a championship ring above all else, we will probably see him playing for the evil empire of LeBron James next season.

2. San Antonio Spurs

If Granger decides he cannot let go of his old rivalry with the Heat from his Pacers days but still wants to old the Larry O'Brien trophy over his head, look for him to head south to San Antonio. Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich has a knack for building championship teams on the back of a deep and talented bench. Granger would fit in well with that strategy.

1. Brooklyn Nets

This will take some financial flexibility on Granger's end, but it's more than doable. The Nets can offer Granger the mid-level exception, which would allow him to work and play his way into a much larger payday in 2015 while logging meaningful minutes for a contender. The Nets would get a chance at a former All-Star on the cheap. Keep a lookout for Granger to come east and play in Brooklyn next season.
