Turner has blossomed into one of the best young big men in the NBA after the Pacers selected him with the No. 11 pick of the 2015 NBA Draft. The deal comes prior to the NBA's deadline for the 2015 rookie class to sign extensions.
He averaged 12.7 points, 6.4 rebounds and 1.8 blocks in 65 games last season.
