    I hate to see Granger go but I think Turner will really flourish in Indy.

    I like Danny but this really helps our bench for THIS YEAR. I prefer Evan Turner to Granger.

    Fantastic move. Gets them out from under the granger conundrum.

    Let's call a spade a spade. The pacers have been crap since he came back. He doesn't fit and he can't play anymore.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Division Champions 1955, 1956, 1988, 1989, 1990, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008

    Nothing. Both Turner and Allen expire at the end of the season. Turner, as he was the #2 overall pick in the draft, has a $9 million cap hold though.

    Both are RFA at the end of this season it looks like. Interesting.

    Evan Turner is a restricted free agent, so the Pacers can match any offer if they want.

    I hate that we traded him to the worst team in the league, but what in the god damn hell are the Sixers thinking?

    We weren't going to be under the cap, so I don't think cap hold affects anything for us (I don't think cap hold determines if you have to use the taxpayer MLE vs. the regular MLE)

    As others have said, this could very well be your Lance replacement if offers get out of hand. Interesting move. I prefer to think in terms of this year, and I think this helps us. I defended Granger but it's pretty clear he wasn't going to help this team win a title. Turner is better.

    I feel bad for Granger but this definitely is a good move.

    We would just have to renounce our rights to Turner as a restricted free agent, otherwise that money is tied up and we couldn't sign Lance to his new contract. Not a major issue, just a note.

    Somebody from the Pacers has to be added to fit the roster, I assume it would be OJ or Rasual...would suck for Butler as well if he's added, I'm sure he'd be bought out.
