INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -The Indiana Pacers have signed forward Danny Granger to a contract extension.
The 6-foot-9 Granger has averaged 13.7 points per game in his three seasons. Last year, he registered career-best averages in points (19.6), rebounds (6.1), steals (1.1) and 3-point field goal percentage (.404).
