INDIANAPOLIS -- The Indiana Pacers pulled off one more bold move before Thursdays trading deadline. Niklas Kronwall Red Wings Jersey . Less than three weeks after signing Andrew Bynum, Indiana sent Danny Granger and a 2015 second-round draft pick to Philadelphia in exchange for former first-round pick Evan Turner and forward Lavoy Allen. The teams confirmed the deal late Thursday after the NBAs league office approved it. The draft pick originally belonged to Golden State. Yahoo! Sports first reported the trade. Indiana now adds two young forwards -- players who could help them as they attempt to dethrone two-time defending NBA champion Miami and finally win their first NBA title. But they had to give up Granger, a fan favourite who was once considered the face of the franchise. "We thank Danny for his 8 1/2 seasons with us and we appreciate everything he did for us in his time here," president of basketball operations Larry Bird said in a statement. "We felt we needed to make this trade to strengthen the core unit and our bench. In Evan and Lavoy, we think we got two really good players that can help us and we look forward to what they can bring." What the rebuilding 76ers are getting is 30-year-old forward who missed all but five games last season with a knee injury and almost the first two months of this season with a strained left calf. Granger, who led Indiana in scoring for the five straight seasons before his knee injury, also has an expiring contract, and Philadelphia will get another pick in a draft many believe will be rife with talent. The trade also could help teams on both ends of the NBAs spectrum. Indiana has now picked up three former 76ers this month -- Bynum, Turner and Allen -- in an effort to add more scoring punch for their expected playoff showdown with Miami. The Pacers already have the best record in the East (41-13) and lead the Heat by two games in the chase for home-court advantage. Philadelphia, meanwhile, went into Thursday with the second-worst record in the league at 15-40 and now appears poised to make a run at surpassing Milwaukee for the worst mark in the NBA. In a flurry of moves, the 76ers picked up a handful of draft picks, a few veterans and lost two of their top four scorers. Turner, a 6-foot-7 guard, was the No. 2 overall draft pick in 2010 after winning college basketballs player of the year award. He was averaging a team-high 17.4 points, 6.0 rebounds and 3.7 assists and could become a free agent after this season. He has averaged of 11.5 points, 5.5 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game in 3 1/2 NBA seasons. Granger was averaging 8.3 points since returning from a strained left calf in mid-December, but he has career averages of 17.6 points, 5.1 rebounds and 2.0 assists. He played in the 2009 All-Star Game and was voted the leagues Most Improved Player in 2008-09. The 76ers also sent Spencer Hawes, their top rebounder, to Cleveland earlier in the day. He was averaging 13.0 points and 8.5 rebounds in the final year of his contract. But Philadelphia certainly loaded up on second-round picks. In addition to getting Indianas choice, the 76ers also acquired two second-round picks, forward Earl Clark and centre Henry Sims in the deal with Cleveland and added guard Eric Maynor from Washington in a three-way deal that netted a 2016 second-round pick from Denver and a 2015- second-round pick from New Orleans. And the usually cost-conscious Pacers now look like they are loading up on big bodies for the playoffs. Theyve added the 7-foot Bynum, a former All-Star who missed all of last season in Philly because of knee injuries. This season, he signed with Cleveland as a free agent before getting traded to Chicago and then released. Indiana signed Bynum on Feb. 1 and though he has not played, coach Frank Vogel said he didnt expect Bynum to play for a few weeks. Allen, a 6-foot-9, 255-pound forward, was averaging 5.2 points and 5.4 rebounds with Philadelphia. To clear room on the roster, Indiana waived Orlando Johnson, a second-year guard they obtained in a draft night trade in 2012. "Orlando is a great kid," said Bird. "We appreciate everything hes done for us and hope he has a long and successful career." Detroit Red Wings Jersey . -- Navy football player Will McKamey, who has been hospitalized since collapsing at practice three days ago, has died while in a coma. Gordie Howe Red Wings Jersey .DeMarco Murray got his 20th carry late in the fourth quarter with a 10-point lead, not long after Dez Bryant made his final catch of the day.Sure enough, a 44-17 win over Washington didnt change Dallas post-season position. http://www.redwingshockeyauthentic.com/kris-draper-jersey/ . -- Golden State Warriors reserve centre Ognjen Kuzmic is expected to miss at least six weeks after undergoing surgery on his fractured right hand.(SportsNetwork.com) - The top spot in the conference is out of their reach but the Denver Broncos still want a week off. The AFC West champions will try to secure a first-round bye in the AFC playoff bracket when they close the regular season against the three-win Oakland Raiders. The Broncos can earn the bye with a win over Oakland or a Cincinnati loss to Pittsburgh on Sunday night. Denvers hopes of garnering the top seed in the conference went up in smoke during Week 16 when Jeremy Hill rushed for 147 yards and a touchdown and Dre Kirkpatrick posted two interceptions as the Cincinnati Bengals clinched a playoff spot of their own with a 37-28 win over the Broncos. Peyton Manning struggled throughout the game and was picked off four times while finishing with 311 yards and two scores on 28-of-44 passing for Denver, which had a four-game win streak come to an end. C.J. Anderson rushed for 83 yards and a score on 18 carries, Emmanuel Sanders had two scores to go with 70 yards on six catches and Demaryius Thomas finished with seven catches for a game-high 115 yards in defeat. We just have to be more consistent for four quarters, Manning said. You cant play well the end of the second quarter and the beginning of the third quarter - not play well in the first and not play well in the fourth. Against good football teams, you have to be more consistent and I have to play better as well. New England clinched the first overall seed in the AFC due to Denvers loss. The Raiders, meanwhile, come in off an exciting 26-24 win over Buffalo in which Derek Carr passed for 214 yards and two touchdowns, and Sebastian Janikowski kicked four field goals for Oakland. Carr completed 17-of-34 attempts and tossed scores to James Jones and Jamize Olawale for the Raiders, who have a chance to match their win total of the past two seasons if they top the Broncos. We wanted to give our fans something special this week. [The fans] have been tremendous, said Raiders head coach Tony Sparano. Thats a great job of fighting when nobody thought youd come out and fight. Latavius Murray and Darren McFadden combined for 140 yards on 32 attempts, while Kenbrell Thompkins posted 90 yards on five receptions. Oakland leads its all-time series with Denver by a 59-47-2 margin but the Broncos have won six straight, including a 41-17 win in Northern California on Nov. 9 when Manning threw for 340 yards and five TDs, two apiece to Julius Thomas and Sanders. WHAT TO WATCH FOR The quarterback is the epicenter in every NFL city, the first player commented on and evaluated, be it positive or negative. And when that signal caller happens to be Manning, any blip, no matter how slight, in a career defined by consistency is going to be overblown. To be fair to those currently questioning Manning, he is obviously far closer to the end of his brilliant career than the beginning with a medical record that includes four neck surgeries so its not exactly out of bounds to be on the lookout for what is the inevitable decline for every player. Manning has looked mortal in recent weeks, almost like an actual 38-year-old man with Mondays four-interception implosion in Cincinnati serving as the main course for the haters. The sky is not falling, Broncos coach John Fox said. Were not getting ready to get rid of our quarterback. Hes fine and, were all going to get better. Fine is a relative term in the NFL. The setback against the Bengals was Mannings first quadruple INT game since 2010 and helped assure that the road to AFC championship would go through Foxbrorough and not the Rocky Mountains, a potential death blow when it comes to the fairytale ending of Manning walking off stage left with the Lombardi Trophy. We have to find a way to learn from this, a dejected Manning said. All four of Denvers losses have come on the road this season and 11 of Mannings 15 interceptions have come away from Mile High. Meanwhile, six of those 11 picks came at the hands of the Bengals and Patriots, two teams the Broncos may have to beat if they plan on being in Glendale come February. Denver personnnel chief John Elway overhauled his defense following the Super Bowl XLVIII collapse against Seattle last season and bringing in players like DeMarcus Ware, Aquib Talib and T. Steve Yzerman Red Wings Jersey Authentic. J. Ward has certainly helped on that side of the ball as evidenced by Denvers current standing as the third-ranked stop unit in all of football. What Elway didnt address, however, was the offensive line, the teams real Achilles heel against both the Seahawks and Cincinnati on Monday night. We gave up two sacks and we lead the whole National Football League in sacks per pass (play), Fox said when discussing his much-maligned OL on Tuesday. We did not coach well enough and we did not play well enough. They had a better night than we did. The thought in Denver was the return of star left tackle Ryan Clady, who missed most of the 13 campaign with a Lisfranc injury would be enough. The plan was for Chris Clark, who replaced Clady at LT last season, to bump over to the right side with Orlando Franklin moving inside to left guard opposite solid right guard Louis Vasquez. And if the 12 version of Clady, who allowed just one sack the entire season, showed up this time around all of that might have worked but the former All- Pro has been average at best this season despite the reputation-generated Pro Bowl nod he received on Tuesday night. The 14 Clady has been playing at a level nowhere near the AFCs best left tackles -- Clevelands Joe Thomas and the Bengals Andrew Whitworth -- and one high-profile, scouting-based website has him rated as the 45th best tackle in the NFL. Clark, meanwhile, couldnt carry his own water at right tackle before being replaced by Paul Cornick, who also faltered, leaving the Broncos to make wholesale changes, kicking Vasquez outside, moving Manny Ramirez from center to right guard and inserting veteran pivot Will Montgomery. The lack of consistency has hurt but the bigger issue has been the athleticism or lack thereof, as the Denver O-Line has trouble getting to the second level in the running game, and Vasquez struggles mightily against speed on the outside as evidenced by Carlos Dunlaps big game on Monday night. No one covers for a mediocre offense line better than Manning, a signal caller who possesses a lightning-quick release as well as a football IQ that is off the charts. Manning can and does vary his snap count better than just about any other QB who has ever played the game but eventually a defense is going to get its chances against a stationary target and the lack of consistent pass protection has left Manning a battered and bruised mess with the playoffs looming. Perhaps no team ticketed for the postseason needs a first-round bye more than the Broncos and they can lock that up with a Week 17 win as a two-touchdown favorite over Oakland. A rested and relatively healthy Manning is the difference between a deep playoff run and one-and-done. I learned a long time ago it doesnt matter how you start the race its how you finish, said Fox. Well step back from (Monday night), well learn from it, well analyze and decipher went wrong and hopefully get it fixed. For the Raiders, Carr leads all rookies in both passing yards (3,112) and touchdowns (20), and has probably been the second best freshman signal caller this season behind Minnesotas Teddy Bridgewater. Carr, though, has been well below average in the road, compiling a less-than- stellar 69.8 passer rating which has contributed to Oaklands 0-7 record away from the Bay Area. Weve got to learn how to take what we do (at home) and go on the road and do it, Carr said. We need to learn how to do that and its something that we are learning to do. But it just hasnt happened yet. Eventually well get it right. OVERALL ANALYSIS Carr and the Raiders may eventually get it but not this week. Denver has a significant talent advantage on both sides of the football and plenty to play for. The reality is were going to get an opportunity to compete for the Lombardi Trophy, Fox said. Were in the playoffs.
