Even though it's been known since last night, the signing of veteran small forward Danny Granger is now official.

As shown in the picture, Granger will wear number 33, completing the Clippers' upgrades of their #0 player (from Mullens to Davis) and their #33 player (from Jamison to Granger) at the deadline. It remains to be seen how Granger will fit into the rotation, as his size would allow him to get minutes at either forward position. He could end up being the starter at small forward if he can shake the rust off and play better for Los Angeles than this season in Indiana.
The Clippers are also interested in Ben Gordon, but reportedly Gordon would like to preserve his free agency this summer. It is uncertain if Gordon will be bought out or if he would land with the Clippers.
