Statement on Danny Granger

The following is a statement from Philadelphia 76ers President of Basketball Operations and General Manager Sam Hinkie, regarding Danny Granger:

"His accomplishments and accolades to this point of his NBA career more than speak for themselves, so I would like to express that I have a great deal of respect for Danny Granger as a person.  The manner with which he carried himself throughout this process was professional, courteous and respectful, and speaks volumes about his character.

"Following the completion of the trade on Thursday night, Danny traveled to Philadelphia and we had an opportunity to meet with him here. These were in addition to the open lines of communication with his agent Aaron Mintz and CAA while we worked through the next steps.

"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.

"We wish Danny the best in the next phase of his career."
