With Danny Granger's contract set to expire and the Pacers always looking for more beef to throw at the Heat, the Pacers have quietly kept Granger on the trade market. But with hours to go before the deadline, it's reportedly slim pickings.

It's not surprising. Granger isn't the same player he was before his run of knee injuries, averaging 8.3 points and 3.6 rebounds per game on just 36 percent shooting. Expiring contracts don't have the same value they used to have, further complicating efforts. If the Pacers keep Granger, it means they clear space to re-sign Lance Stephenson as a free agent.

We helped break down more of the situation a few months ago.
