LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Forward Danny Granger has signed with the Los Angeles Clippers, adding more veteran depth for the club's playoff push.

The former All-Star joined the Clippers on Friday after his contract was bought out by the Philadelphia 76ers, who acquired him in a trade with Indiana last week. Granger cleared waivers shortly before Los Angeles announced the deal.

Granger could play significant minutes for the Clippers (40-20), who lead the Pacific Division by four games over Golden State. He is coach Doc Rivers' second major free-agent addition to the Clippers in the past week along with veteran big man Glen Davis.

Despite the Clippers' stellar record, they're eager to add depth after several significant injury problems this season.
