It's official -- Granger is a Clipper

Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports

Granger cleared waivers at 2 PM PT and it didn't take long to get his signature on a Clippers contract. He could be in uniform against the Pelicans tomorrow night.

Former All Star Danny Granger, traded from Indiana to Philadelphia last Thursday and waived by the Sixers earlier this week, cleared waivers today at 2 PM PT. At 2:11 PM I got the official announcement that he had signed with the Los Angeles Clippers via email. Somebody's pretty excited about this!

The Los Angeles Clippers announced today that they have signed free agent forward Danny Granger. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Granger, 30, appeared in 29 games (two starts) this season with the Indiana Pacers averaging 8.3 points, 3.6 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 22.6 minutes per game. He played his entire eight-year NBA career with the Pacers. He holds career averages of 17.6 points, 5.1 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 544 games (425 starts) over 32.5 minutes per game.

The New Orleans native has appeared in 22 playoff games (19 starts) throughout his career, averaging 15.6 points, 5.5 rebounds and 2.4 assists over 34.8 minutes per game. Granger's best season with the Pacers came in 2008-09 when he averaged a career-high 25.8 points to go along with 5.1 rebounds and 2.7 assists while averaging 2.7 three-pointers per game. For his efforts, he was selected to the Eastern Conference All-Star Team and was voted the NBA's Most Improved Player.

Originally drafted 17th overall in the 2005 NBA Draft, Granger started his collegiate career at Bradley where he played for two seasons. He transferred to the University of New Mexico after his first semester of his sophomore year and played two seasons for the Lobos. A First Team All-Mountain West selection, Granger was the only player in the NCAA that averaged 18.8 points and 8.9 rebounds while also averaging at least 2.0 blocks (2.1), 2.0 steals (2.0) and 2.0 assists (2.0) his senior season.

Granger will have to pass a physical before the league office considers the signing complete. Assuming he gets his physical today, he will probably be in uniform for the Clippers game against the New Orleans Pelicans tomorrow night. With Granger joining Glen Davis as buyout-to-LA additions, February free agency is turning out to be as profitable or more so than June was for the Clippers.
