Here’s ESPN.com reporting on the Los Angeles Clippers, who hope to land the services of Danny Granger, a player that in 2011-12 scored 18.7 ppg but in 2012-13 played just five games, and in 2013-14 so far has averaged just 8.3 ppg on 36% shooting in 22.5 minutes per outing:

Clippers reportedly hope to land Danny Granger

The Los Angeles Clippers met with the representatives of swingman Danny Granger during Wednesday night’s game against the Houston Rockets and have nudged ahead of the San Antonio Spurs in the race for Granger’s services, according to sources close to the process.

The Clippers are widely regarded as the team best positioned to provide Granger the playing time and the championship contention he craves.

And they’ve stepped up their pursuit of the former All-Star, sources told ESPN.com, at least partly due to growing concern within the organization about the status of guard J.J. Redick, who has missed the past nine games and is out indefinitely with a back injury.
