The Danny Granger Era in Philadelphia ended quicker than Andrew Bynum's. As expected, the 76ers and Granger agreed to a contract buyout on Wednesday.

The team announced the deal before the 76ers took the floor against the Orlando Magic at the Wells Fargo Center. 

The terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The Sixers acquired Granger and a 2015 second-round pick from the Indiana Pacers in exchange for Evan Turner and Lavoy Allen at the trade deadline last Thursday.
