Heat Players Reportedly Don’t Want Danny Granger on Team
The Heat normally welcomes any vet that comes on their squad with open arms, but it appears they still have some beef with Granger over some of his actions in the playoffs.
The Miami Herald provides more details and says the Heat would prefer Caron Butler to be signed.
Danny Granger, 30, acquired by Philadelphia, reportedly wants a buyout so he can sign with the Heat or a Western Conference contender, and Caron Butler, 33, also will welcome Heat overtures if he gets a buyout from Milwaukee, as many expect.
So who would be better for Miami? Heat players would clearly prefer Butler; he and Dwyane Wade are close from their days as Heat teammates, and Granger irritated the Heat’s stars by getting in their faces after fouls in the 2012 playoffs. At the time, LeBron James called Granger’s conduct “stupid.”
