The Clippers are interested in pursuing Danny Granger if he is able to secure a buyout from the Philadelphia 7ers, according to NBA executives who were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter.

Multiple reports have said Granger and his representatives are in discussions with the 76ers about a buyout.

Granger would have to get the buyout by Thursday in order to clear waivers because the deadline for waived players to be on a team’s playoff roster is 9 p.m. Pacific time Saturday.

The Clippers would have competition in landing Granger. The San Antonio Spurs, Houston Rockets and Miami Heat also want to sign Granger, according an NBA executive.


The Clippers view Granger as a possible starter at small forward. Granger was acquired by the 76ers on Thursday in a trade with the Indiana Pacers.
