Heat sign Josh McRoberts and Danny Granger
The Miami Heat signed free agents Danny Granger and Josh McRoberts with the Bi-Annual Exception and the Mid-Level Exception, respectively.
The Heat are in serious re-tooling mode in order to lure back LeBron James and Chris Bosh. Chris Bosh reportedly has a deal from the Rockets in place that he is seriously considering while it is no secret that LeBron is considering a return to Cleveland.
At the start of free agency, rumors swirled that Miami was looking to add a fourth major piece to help revamp the roster. The team ended up settling for McRoberts and Granger. Granger averaged just over eight points and three rebounds a game last year for the Pacers and Clippers. McRoberts averaged 8.5 points and 4.8 rebounds per game last season for the Bobcats.
Now that they have used both of their exceptions on additional pieces, the Heat will have a difficult time bringing in a player who can help take the scoring load off of LeBron James. While McRoberts and Granger are nice pieces, I’m not sure they are the headlining pieces that the Heat were hoping to bring in this offseason.
