SACRAMENTO, July 24 (UPI) -- Sacramento acquired All-Star forward-center Brad Miller from Indiana on Thursday in the NBA's second multi-team blockbuster trade in as many days.

To get Miller, Sacramento dealt forward Scot Pollard to the Pacers and guard Hedo Turkoglu to the San Antonio Spurs. Indiana also landed forward Danny Ferry from San Antonio while the Spurs also received guard Ron Mercer.

Miller, 27, made his first All-Star appearance last season, when he averaged 13.1 points and a career-high 8.3 rebounds in 73 games. The Utah Jazz and Denver Nuggets reportedly were courting the 7-footer, offering between $49 million and $55 million.

An undrafted five-year veteran, Miller has career averages of 10.5 points and 6.9 rebounds in 299 games with Charlotte, Chicago and Indiana.

Pollard, 28, joins the third team of his six-year career.
