I know we showed interest in him before the trade deadline and tried to include him in the package with Neal, so I think we'd have a good shot.  Yes, the Heat are interested in him, but Granger is also finalizing his buyout with the Sixers today, so whoever doesn't choose Miami could, and should, be a target for us.

I would like either, but I think Butler goes to the Heat and Granger goes to the Spurs, Rockets, or the Clippers

No veteran like a Butler or Granger is going to Charlotte to play on a 7th or 8th seed. I just can't see it happening. However that will happen in the future...

4th seed very much in play for Charlotte.  Big Al fuging up draft status like you can't believe.

One of these guys is definitely in play for us, IMO. 

 

Clips already signed Big Baby.  There are only so many roster spots and money available to sign these guys.  You're telling me that Granger,  Butler, AND Jimmer would turn us down when offering more money than any of those other teams can offer, and more likely, a much bigger role?  No.  If we want one, I think it's highly likely we'll get one of those guys.

I'd prefer Granger or Butler because we now have a two-guard who can shoot the three now, so having a SF who can do the same could be lethal, and Butler is a great all-around player.

BUT, I will say I think the odds are that Granger signs with the Clips or Spurs and Butler will sign with the Heat.

That's exactly what I am saying. I don't see why Jimmer wouldn't want to come here if he's promised PT, but there's literally no reason for Granger or Butler to pick us over the Spurs, Heat, Thunder, Rockets, Clippers, etc other than a few extra dollars for this season. I can almost guarantee that they will take the shot at a ring over the extra few dollars that we can offer them this year. However, I think in the off season one of them may chose us over a top contender if the money is right.

I don't know why a player on a buyout would want to come here... the guys who go through buyouts usually are veterans who want rings

Butler is probably headed for Miami.
