INDIANAPOLIS - FEBRUARY 3: Danny Granger #33 of the Indiana Pacers dribbles the ball against the Orlando …

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- The Philadelphia 76ers have completed a buyout of the contract of veteran forward Danny Granger, enabling the veteran forward to sign with any team assuming he clears waivers by 5 p.m. on Friday.

Granger was acquired from the Indiana Pacers last Thursday for Evan Turner and Lavoy Allen, but never played a minute for Philadelphia. The 76ers also received a 2015 second-round draft pick in the deal.

''Given Danny's future goals and his desire to pursue them, we worked to fulfill his requests and have come to a resolution that we feel is mutually beneficial to both Danny and our organization,'' Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie said in a statement Wednesday night. ''We wish Danny the best in the next phase of his career.''

Granger has averaged 17.6 points and 5.1 rebounds in his nine seasons, all of which were with the Pacers.
