Chris Sheridan

Dirk, Pau, Granger, Pierce and Richard Jefferson took top 5 pay cuts for 2014-15 season. Full Top 10 here: sheridanhoops.com/2014/07/24/kob…

Ira Winderman

I view Ennis more as a forward. I think Granger the backup there. RT @DCab90 You think its possible for Ennis to back up wade at SG?

Miami Heat, closer to lottery or ECF? PG: Chalmers, Cole, Napier SG: Wade SF: Deng, Granger, Ennis PF: McRoberts, Haslem C: Bosh, Birdman

Eric Pincus

Updated the @BBallInsiders Miami HEAT Team Salary - McRoberts, Chalmers, Granger signed basketballinsiders.com/miami-heat-tea…

Scott Agness

Heat announce signing of @Danny Granger. Pat Riley:“One of our main priorities…was obtaining a proven veteran like Danny w All-Star experience”

Shandel Richardson

Riley on Granger signing: “One of our main priorities this offseason was obtaining a proven veteran like Danny with All-Star experience."

Ira Winderman

Chalmers, McRoberts, Granger now all formally under contract to Heat, as the replace-LeBron-a-thon continues. bit.ly/1mPvi8F

Jason Lieser

Heat confirm Granger signing. Riley-"One of our main priorities this offseason was obtaining a proven vet like Danny w/ All-Star experience"

Ira Winderman

Riley on Granger (cont.), "We expect him to be a multi-position player and have a very successful season in our system.”

Ira Winderman

Riley on Granger, "One of our main priorities this offseason was obtaining a proven veteran like Danny with All-Star experience . . . "

Ira Winderman

And now Heat signs Danny Granger.

Ira Winderman

Can't use them once used space for Deng. RT @miamiheatwave What are the advantages of not using exceptions for Josh McRoberts, Granger?

Ira Winderman

The train is rolling: You get a contract! You get a contract! You get a . . . RT @mfr234 When will Granger be announced?

Ira Winderman

Oh, and forgot Granger, so make that 12 out of 15 spots likely already in place. (Tough crowd in 'Mentions' land.)

Ira Winderman

Haslem, Cole, Napier, Granger, Ennis, and likely Birdman. RT @flipgee_ Still no bench?

Lang Greene

Interested to see how Pat Riley finishes filling HEAT roster. So far - Chris Bosh, Danny Granger, Luol Deng, Josh McRoberts and Norris Cole

Scott Agness

He’s in Indy right now. RT @jakequery: I’m told @Danny Granger did meet w/Larry Bird regarding possible return, but numbers couldn’t add up.

Ira Winderman

Once Heat capped, with have $2.7M exception. Getting close, at about $58M with Bosh, Wade, Deng, McRoberts, Granger, Cole, Napier, Haslem.

Ira Winderman

So Bosh, McRoberts, Deng, Wade, Chalmers, Granger, Birdman, Napier, Cole, Ennis, Haslem, Jones, Oden, Beasley, Hamilton a possible Heat 15.

Ira Winderman

In or to be in with Heat: Bosh, Wade, McRoberts, Granger, Cole, Napier, Ennis. Stringly looming: Deng, Birdman. Possible: Hamilton.

Ira Winderman

Wade, UD close to deals; McRoberts, Granger still in plans; Deng, Chalmers possible. No Cavs sign-trade, pick lost. bit.ly/1oQhMAa

Ethan J. Skolnick

Wade & Haslem still negotiating $ & length of deals, though both expected back. As for McRoberts & Granger, they may end up under cap now.

Jason Lieser

Several have asked if LeBron's move affects McRoberts & Granger deals. Heat would not back out of those.

Ira Winderman

So if Cavs met Sunday with LeBron, Riley was making McRoberts, Granger moves Monday to support a player with at least one foot out the door.

Michael Lee

Poor Danny Granger...

Steve Popper

So, have people started blaming Danny Granger for ruining the Heat yet?

Chris Mannix

One reason MIA can overpay Wade to return: NBA's minimum for team salaries is $56.8 mill. Heat have Cole, McRoberts, Granger…and that's it

Surya Fernandez

But...think of Danny Granger, LeBron! C'mon!

Dave Mason

We have McBob! And Danny Granger! RT @i832 @Dave Mason Worst job to have - dude in charge of ticket sales for the Heat.

Ben Bolch

Dwyane Wade took less money, probably to become teammates with Josh McRoberts and Danny Granger.

David Alarcon

Efecto dominó. Chris Bosh firmará por Houston y habrá que ver si Josh McRoberts y Danny Granger renuncian al acuerdo verbal con Miami

Ira Winderman

Have Heat altered plans with McRoberts, Granger? Latest "Ask Ira" at bit.ly/1mR8nvo plus more.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Some have asked about Josh McRoberts and Danny Granger. No official release/press conference on either today. For obvious reasons.

Gary Lee

The Heat could go from LeBron James and Chris Bosh to Danny Granger and Josh McRoberts in a matter of moments. Lol.

Gary Lee

If Chris Bosh signs with the Rockets, then the Heat will still have Josh McRoberts and Danny Granger.

Mike McGraw

If LBJ & Bosh leave, Wade drops down to $12 mil, Heat would have about $37 mil to spend, assuming they stick w/ McRoberts & Granger

Ira Winderman

So Heat get McRoberts/Granger, and Cavs open space for LeBron max-level contract. Either blind faith by one of both, or someone knows.

Ryan McNeill

Why are people convinced LeBron is staying in Miami? He clearly gave Riles an ultimatum to add talent to roster. Granger + McRoberts = fail.

Amin Elhassan

Wow you really have no clue how this works RT @DentonReports: @Amin Elhassan McBob and Granger aint walking through that door. #pitinogame

Jeff Zillgitt

Also hearing that Granger is highly motivated to prove he can be a valuable contributor on a contender. We'll see. But they are upgrades.

Zach Lowe

Column includes strong comments from players union on Heat tactics, analysis on Bosh/HOU, McBob, Granger: grantland.com/features/nba-m…

Jeff Zillgitt

Doesn't guarantee anything yet, but Heat are very happy with Josh McRoberts, Danny Granger agreements.

Ira Winderman

So basically McRoberts in for Battier, Granger in for Beasley, Napier in for Douglas, Ennis in for (argument's sake) Jones.

Ira Winderman

With McRoberts, Granger, and with promise of Napier, Ennis, Heat are better than they were at end of season. And haven't lost anyone (yet).
