In addition to getting Indiana’s choice, the 76ers also acquired two second-round picks, forward Earl Clark and center Henry Sims in the deal with Cleveland and added guard Eric Maynor from Washington in a three-way deal that netted a 2016 second-round pick from Denver and a 2015- second-round pick from New Orleans.

And the usually cost-conscious Pacers now look like they are loading up on big bodies for the playoffs.

They’ve added the 7-foot Bynum, a former All-Star who missed all of last season in Philly because of knee injuries. This season, he signed with Cleveland as a free agent before getting traded to Chicago and then released. Indiana signed Bynum on Feb. 1 and though he has not played, coach Frank Vogel said he didn’t expect Bynum to play for a few weeks.

Allen, a 6-foot-9, 255-pound forward, was averaging 5.2 points and 5.4 rebounds with Philadelphia.

To clear room on the roster, Indiana waived Orlando Johnson, a second-year guard they obtained in a draft night trade in 2012.

“Orlando is a great kid,” said Bird. “We appreciate everything he’s done for us and hope he has a long and successful career.”
