Report: Miami Heat, Danny Granger reach agreement on two-year deal

Monday July 7th, 2014

The Miami Heat and free-agent small forward Danny Granger have reached an agreement on a two-year, $4.2 million contract, according to a report from Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.

The 6-foot-8, 225-pound small forward averaged 8.2 points and 3.2 rebounds in 41 games with the Pacers and Clippers last season. Granger, who has missed time over the last two seasons due to knee and hamstring injuries, was dealt to Philadelphia in a midseason trade that sent small forward Evan Turner to the Pacers. Granger was acquired by the Clippers after the 76ers bought out his contract.

Miami is attempting to upgrade its roster after securing the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference and falling to the Spurs in five games in the Finals. The Heat's Big 3 of LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade last month opted out of their contracts and have yet to make commitments for next season.
