Is it likely the Sixers simply buy out the remainder of Granger’s contract? “There’s a chance for us to have a discussion,” Hinkie said. “How that goes, I don’t exactly know, because he hasn’t come. But we’re organizing a flight for him to be here soon.” Courier-Post

Not exactly, if Charlie Villanueva gets a buyout of the remaining amount of his contract, enabling him to latch onto another team where he might get more minutes. His expiring contract didn't fetch the suitors the Pistons believed it would — a league-wide trend, actually — but a buyout is another option. “Anything’s possible. Right now, it is what it is,” Villanueva said. “I wish I could help this team in any way possible, but they’re going in a different direction. It’s part of the business, but if it presented itself, that’s something we’d look at, for sure.” Detroit News

Things could get ugly between the Pacers and T.J. Ford. The Pacers - like they've been doing for quite some time - tried to trade Ford on Wednesday. They couldn't throw him in a deal so they then tried to negotiate a buyout with him. The Pacers wanted Ford to take a buyout for about $5 million. The point guard quickly shot that idea down. "I'm not taking a buyout," Ford said. Indianapolis Star
