The Indiana Pacers traded forward Danny Granger to the Philadelphia 76ers for forwards Evan Turner and Lavoy Allen, reports Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski.

Granger has played in 29 games this season while he continues to work his way back from a knee injury, which limited him to only five games in 2012-13.

Granger spent nine seasons in Indiana, averaging over 20 points a game in three consecutive seasons at one point, including a career high 25.8 points a game in 2008-09.

He is set to make $14 million this season and his contract expires at the end of the year.

Turner was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft. He is averaging 17.4 points, six rebounds, and 3.7 assists this season for the 76ers, who have the second worst record in the Eastern Conference.
