The Indiana Pacers shocked the NBA world on Thursday when they came out of nowhere to land the most talked about trade chip of the deadline. Evan Turner is on his way to the Pacers in exchange for Danny Granger, but not everyone is thrilled about the swap.
While Pacers star Paul George isn’t bashing Turner, he’s also not applauding his team for making the trade. George went on his Instagram account on Thursday to reflect and vent about losing one of his teammates.
The Pacers pride themselves on chemistry, which is why this trade has a lot of people on edge and interested in seeing how it works. While Turner adds fire power to the offense, Granger was extracted in the process and it’s yet to be seen how that changes chemistry.
Granger was a team leader even if he was no longer the best player on the team, as he was relegated to the role of the Sixth Man. Paul George will eventually get over Granger leaving, but it’s very clear that he’s unhappy about the whole situation.
