Granger for Eric Gordon.

Now this would be an awesome trade for Indiana. Gordon not only provides scoring but much needed ball handling as well. I don't see the benefit for NO though. Granger is too old to add to their core and doesn't save them money.

He's an expiring contract, so it's a trade that basically makes up for NO's mistake of paying Gordon all that cash.  He also fills SF for them because they didn't pick up Aminu's qualifying offer.

Gordon is too much of a question mark for IND, a team trying to contend.  He'd be great for them, but he's too unreliable with all the injuries.  Plus, I don't think he enjoyed his time at IU, so going back to Indiana might not be ideal.  He's a wonderful fit for that team  when healthy, though.

Granger is on the books for 14 million through next season. NO would prefer a contract they can get off the books now, like Pierce's.

But my thinking is he could come back and the team could showcase him for half a year and flip him at the deadline. He's still in his prime.

Not a an overly bad idea.

I dont know why everyone is so high strung on Gordon. This team already has an insane amount of guards. 2 of which i can easily see coming back next year (Terry and Lee).

Gordons contract is pretty horrid imho. bloke has never played 82 games. he has played 50 games in the past 2 season out of approx 145

Granger would fit in well also.

Rondo
Bradley/Lee
Granger
Green
KG/ Center

Not a shocking lineup

The Clippers could probably do Bledsoe/Butler for Granger if they miss out on Pierce.

Granger  would be a clear upgrade for the Clippers over Butler and adds another scoring option.

Not sure there is any value out there for Granger. In the trade market.

Yet to see anything that makes sense for Indiana.
Yeah with his knee issues and contract size I'm not sure you could get much of value for him.

I think Indiana needs a SG who can play competent defense.

Danny Granger for Jameer Nelson + Afflalo?

Those 2 magic players are what a rebuilding Orlando should find to be bad contracts, but other teams could find useful.

I think this would also make Lance Stephenson available to be traded for the right player.

Not sure Granger has much value at this point but I like this deal for the Pacers despite not being a fan of Nelson. Nelson has playoff experience and seems to not really fit with what's going on in Orlando anymore. Afflallo would be a great addition to any team and could really help the Pacers as well. He's good on both sides I the floor and could give them even more athleticism and am extra scoring/shooting option.

With this trade, the emergence of George and a resigned west the pacers could be great competition for the Heat for the next few years.

I hadn't gotten this far in the thread and was playing around with the same idea in trade checker.

You need to do a little more work to make the salaries work:

Granger is one guy that doesn't really do anything for me.

He's been injured way too much and even if he ends up being healthy, is he really any better than Jeff Green or even Paul for that matter?

I am thinking a lot of other teams might feel the same way (though I could possibly see the Lakers trying to trade for him.)

they should flip him for a point guard that they desperately need.

You took the words right out of me.

George Hill is a good PG, but if they want to get past in the East, they need a better PG than Hill IMO.

If I'm Indy, I would trade Granger to shed salary, get future picks and some guys who's not under a ton of money contract wise. Maybe a backup for Paul George or a SG along with the pick/s. I would then offer a lot of money (i mean a lot) to acquire Jarret Jack. That would be an easy sell for him. He will be generously get paid to be a part of a contender, then his addition would make Indy even more of a contender.
