Larry Bird wants to do anything to win, and ridding the Indiana Pacers of Danny Granger will expedite the process.
It's not that Granger is a bad player, but it's time to build your roster around some other players. There has been a lot of talk over the past few weeks of him moving on elsewhere.
Granger is a fine scorer and pretty good shooter, but he doesn't fit in with what the Pacers need.
One of the loudest rumors involves the Minnesota Timberwolves. If the Pacers are unable to swing a deal for a point guard without including Danny Granger, they'll bite the bullet and go for it.
There have been two rumors connected with Minnesota. Either Danny Granger for Al Jefferson or Danny Granger for Johnny Flynn with some draft picks swapped on each side.
Granger is one of those players where he'll always score a lot of points, but the question lingers: Does he make those around him better?
If Minnesota doesn't grab him, don't be surprised to see a few other teams get involved.
One of those teams might be the San Antonio Spurs.
The Spurs could use the young blood to re-energize a still solid Spurs team. He would be a great replacement for Richard Jefferson and they would have an additional true scoring threat again.
They would have to include Tony Parker or George Hill, but the deal would be worth it. Even if they had to buy out Jefferson in the end or find another suitor, Granger could be a good fit for the squad.
Don't be surprised to hear rumblings of that final destination if Larry Bird wants to take a big chance. The Spurs may say Parker is untouchable, but for the right price, Granger may be enough to persuade them.
The Spurs may have to include an extra pick, but the deal would be worth it for both sides.
