Indiana Pacers Yet to Negotiate with Danny Granger

The Indiana Pacers have the option to extend the contract of forward Danny Granger this summer, but have not opened up discussions yet.

"We haven’t actually started that process yet," General Manager David Morway told RealGM’s Andrew Perna last week. "We have until October to do that, and I’m sure we will have conversations. Danny is a young player that we hope to build with, but we haven’t even begun yet."

Granger averaged 19.6 points and 6.1 rebounds for Indiana last season and has quickly become the face of the franchise.
