The moment rumors starting flying around the world wide web last week about a possible trade between the 76ers and Indiana Pacers that would send Evan Turner and Lavoy Allen to the Pacers in exchange for Danny Granger and a 2015 second-round pick, discussion about that trade from the 76ers end has centered on what the Sixers would do with Granger.
Even before the deal was official, many assumed that the Sixers would simply buy-out the former All-Star and lethal scorer who thanks to knee issues is now a shell of the 20 ppg. player he was 4 years ago. Starting this past weekend and continuing through this morning, it has been reported that the Sixers are either “working” on a buy-out for Granger or that the Sixers “may” buy him out. Allegedly an announcement could come as soon as today.
Well, I am here to tell you that buying Danny Granger out is a mistake for the 76ers and I’m not the only one who thinks that way.
