April 20, 1983 - Danny Granger was born in New Orleans, Louisiana. Happy 34th Birthday Danny Granger! Granger was selected 17th overall in the 2005 NBA draft by the Indiana Pacers. In his first NBA season, Granger played in 78 regular season games, averaging 7.5 points and 4.9 rebounds per game, while making the All-NBA Rookie Second Team. He added 8.2 points and 5.2 rebounds in 6 playoff games. With the second and third scoring options (Harrington and Stephen Jackson, respectively) on the team gone, he was given more chances for scoring and averaged 13.9 points per game in 2006–07. In 2007–08, Granger led the Pacers in scoring for the first time, averaging 19 points per game, while starting all 80 games he appeared in. In the 2008–09 season, he scored a career high 42 points against the Detroit Pistons on December 12, 2008 and again against the Golden State Warriors on January 11, 2009. On January 29, 2009 Granger was announced as an All-Star reserve for the Eastern Conference. On May 12, 2009 Danny Granger was named the Most Improved Player for 2008–09. At the end of the 2008–09 season, Granger had raised his scoring average by at least five points per game each year (7.5, 13.9, 19.6, 25.8) for three consecutive years, becoming the only player in league history to do so. Following his breakout season in 2008–09, the next season was a bit of a disappointment, marred by injuries and losses. On March 26, 2010, however, Granger scored a new career-high 44 points against the Utah Jazz. In the 2012–13 season, Granger only played 5 games due to patellar tendinosis. On February 20, 2014, Granger and a second-round draft pick were traded to the Philadelphia 76ers in exchange for Evan Turner and Lavoy Allen. Six days later, he was bought out by the 76ers.
