On Wednesday night the Los Angeles Clippers met with recent free agent Danny Granger about joining their team. Granger was bought out of his deal by the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday evening, and is free to sign to any team by March 1st.

Granger was traded to the 76ers for guard Evan Turner and Lavoy Allen, just before the trading deadline. The 30 year old forward has battled injuries a good portion of his nine year career, still managed to average 9 ppg this season.

Jamal Crawford is listed as day-to-day with a strained calf he suffered in the second quarter of the Rockets vs. Clippers game on Wednesday night. Crawford exited and didn't return to the game. Crawford had filled in for JJ Redick who is out indefinitely due to a back injury.

The Clippers have intensified their effort to acquire Granger to deepen their front court presence. They have already began that process by adding Glen "Big Baby" Davis, who signed with the team on Tuesday evening, and played in his first game on Wednesday night.

As the Clippers appear to be in the lead for Granger, the San Antonio Spurs are also heavily in talks with Granger. Granger could join the young talented Kwahi Leonard who has emerged as an impressive player returning from injury.

Granger's presence will be felt more with the Clippers, and they could offer him more security in a role that could elevate the Clippers to that next level.

Granger is expected to listen to all teams interested that also include the Houston Rockets and Dallas Mavericks before making a verbal commitment by Friday at 5PM EST.

According to NBA rules, any player who has appeared in a regular-season game this season must be waived by Saturday at Midnight, to remain eligible to appear in this season's playoffs with another team.

Granger has some decisions to make and a short window to do in, however at least we know he is focused on winning a championship sooner than later.
