The Los Angeles Clippers attempted to bolster their roster in the second half of the 2013-14 season when they signed Danny Granger and Glen Davis to minimum deals with player options for the 2014-15 season. Granger and Davis played decent minutes in their short time with the Clippers, but neither truly offered up much in terms of pushing the reserves for the team to the next level. 

Granger and Davis are both planning on declining their options for next season with the Clippers and will become free agents, per Brad Turner of the LA Times. Granger is interested in rejoining the team, but clearly both players either want long-term commitments in their next contracts or they believe they can fetch more than the league minimum, which they probably can.

Granger come over to the Clippers after being traded from the Pacers to the 76ers at the trade deadline. He was waived by the Sixers and became an unrestricted free agent. He signed with the Clippers after clearing waivers and played in 12 regular season games and 13 playoff games for them. He averaged 8.0 points and 2.3 rebounds in 16.2 minutes in the regular season for the Clippers and played in 41 games total between the Clippers and Pacers. He played in just five games the previous season.

Davis signed with the Clippers after being waived by the Magic following the trade deadline. In 23 games for the Clippers, Big Baby averaged 4.2 points and 3.0 rebounds in 13.4 minutes of action. Considering the Clippers had next to nothing for depth inside, he was needed to be an integral part of the Clippers' rotation.
