After three and a half seasons in Philadelphia, Evan Turner was traded to the Pacers on Thursday.

One day later, Turner thanked Sixers fans on his Instagram account, posting a picture from his introductory press conference in 2010.

Here's what the former Sixer had to say:

"Seems like it was just yesterday I was at this press conference introduced as the newest member to the philadelphia 76ers. That moment was a great moment and it was even more of a shock the way the fans welcomed me to the city by greeting me at the train station with @christiancrosby leading the was and@preston76 directing me every step of the way.

"Since then ive had some good and bad moments but im lucky that i was able to be coached by great people and play with talented teamates who were able to lead the franchise to the playoffs twice. Even through the rough times i still appreciated the support and passion that the true fans showed myself and my teammates.

"Even though this year has been rough I definitely appreciated going through the trials and tribulations with hardworking people such as my teammates and coaches. 

"I believe the future is bright for the organization because Coach [Brett] Brown is a determined, positive and passionate leader. I very lucky to have the opportunity to play for him and learn from him. To my loyal supporters, I would like to thank you for standing behind through it all and making my time in Philly memorable. God bless you all!"
