Danny Granger has completed the last installment of his
physical, and 76ers coach Brett Brown said he intended to sit down with the
30-year-old forward Sunday afternoon.
Granger did not see or participate in the Sixers’
two-hour practice at PCOM. Brown said Granger was not even in the building.
“He was going through the final stages of physicals and I’m
going to be meeting with him within the hour,” Brown said.
Granger, who was acquired from Indiana Thursday at the
trade deadline, reportedly does not want to play for the Sixers and is said to
be seeking a buyout of the remainder of his contract. The small forward is
making $14 million this season.
Only Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie has spoken with
Granger, Brown said, though the coach expected that to change in the 60 minutes
following his team’s practice.
“Sam has met with him,” Brown said. “(Granger) has done
his physicals and he’ll come back and I’ll sit down with him for the first time
now that the physicals have been had and talk with him.”
The Sixers host Milwaukee Monday.
