HoopsHype Danny Granger rumors

And then, four days after Granger committed to Pat Riley and Erik Spoelstra, James committed to a return to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Able to rescind or even restructure his two-year, $4.2 million agreement, Granger kept his commitment. "It's two-fold," he said. "Yeah, I think everybody would like a chance to play with LeBron. But in the same aspect, a guy like me, who's trying to reestablish myself, him leaving isn't a terrible thing for me. It gives me an opportunity to play more, affords to do more of what I used to do. My initial reaction was to come to play with him, but once he left, it still was a good situation for me. "I reassessed a little bit, myself and my agent. But at the point where I was at, it was more about me reestablishing, rather than the money or something like that. I've made a bunch of money. I just want to reestablish myself as the player that I was previously." South Florida Sun-Sentinel

I saw you said they gave Michael Beasley's No. 8 to Shawne Williams. So I guess they're not going to retire Bease's number? (OK, so it means he's not coming back?) -- Henrique. A: An adjustment still could be made if Beasley is brought back, but that is an increasing longshot. But it's also not as if the Heat are mass producing Shawne Williams jerseys at this stage, either. While Beasley appears to be in the rearview mirror, the Heat still seems to be lacking on the wing, where the current options are Dwyane Wade, Luol Deng, Danny Granger, Reggie Williams, James Ennis and Tyler Johnson. There simply is not a lot of one-on-one creativity there, no one, really, other that Wade who can score off the dribble. South Florida Sun-Sentinel

Granger's prescience as a team leader was a little overblown on the outside, sources said, because he largely had grown apart from the team during his bouts of knee injuries during the past two seasons. Granger, sources said, also had grown wary of playing in the same rotation with Stephenson, which prevented him from getting as many touches as he preferred. However, with the team struggling with its first significant chemistry issues since coming together, the decisions backfired badly. Neither deal worked out, and in Bynum's case, he appears to have had a negative effect on Hibbert and his sometimes delicate outlook on games. ESPN.com
