LOS ANGELES, Feb. 28 (Xinhua) -- Los Angeles Clippers signed Danny Granger on Friday just minutes after he became an NBA free agent.

Granger is a former All-Star forward for the Indiana Pacers, which sent the 30-year-old to Philadelphia last week at the NBA trade deadline and the 76ers bought out his contract, enabling Granger to join a title contender.

Granger was named the NBA's Most Improved Player in 2008-09 after averaging 25.8 points and 6.1 rebounds but has struggled with knee injuries the past two seasons.

Granger played only five regular-season games for Indiana last season and missed the first 25 games of this season due to a strained calf, averaging 8.3 points and 3.6 rebounds in 29 appearances with the Pacers, who have the NBA's best record at 44-13.

The Clippers, 40-20, lead the Pacific division by four games over Golden State with the NBA's seventh-best record, fifth-best in the Western Conference.
