The Twitter account of Evan Turner used to include this in its description: “not a business man, but a business; man!”

Yes, the #2 overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft truly embodies that legendary Jay-Z prose as he was part of a huge business deal done today. We knew Evan Turner was being dealt today, but it was thought that he’d be headed to San Antonio or Charlotte

Turner was sent from Philadelphia along with Lavoy Allen to Indiana in exchange for Danny Granger. It is being reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo.

Baron Davis played like a man possessed as he dished out nine dimes while scoring eight points in the first half.
