5 Miami Heat Players Most Likely to be Traded before the Deadline

2. Danny Granger
Danny Granger was a low-risk signing in the aftermath of James leaving for Cleveland last summer.
The hope was that Granger would prove to be a viable scoring option off the bench, while regaining some of the explosiveness that made him an NBA All-Star back in 2009.
Unfortunately, the veteran small forward missed the first 10 games of the season due to a hamstring injury. Since then, Granger has been very limited in what he has contributed on the court for Miami. Going into the All-Star break, the 31-year-old was averaging just 6.3 PPG on 40.1 percent shooting from the field in just 30 appearances.
Clearly, Granger has not been the sixth man the Heat envisioned when they signed him less than a year ago.
Miami has been shopping the veteran small forward around, and was insistent on trading Granger when they tried to package him with Norris Cole for Jonas Jerebko of the Detroit Pistons recently. Unfortunately for the Heat, the Pistons didn’t want Granger.
However, the small forward is on a modest two-year, $4.2 million deal and is due just $2.2 million next season. That makes it viable that a team could take a chance on the 10-year veteran.
