The 6-foot-9 Granger has averaged 13.7 points per game in his three seasons. Last year, he registered career-best averages in points (19.6), rebounds (6.1), steals (1.1) and 3-point field goal percentage (.404).
He was the Pacers' first-round draft pick - 17th overall - in the 2005 NBA Draft.
Terms of the contract extension haven't been announced.
Granger says he's very excited about the direction the Pacers are going and he's glad to have a part in their future.
Pacers' president of basketball operations Larry Bird says Granger is a very important part of the team's future.
