Why Lance Stephenson is no longer what the Indiana Pacers need

The 6-foot-5, 230-pound point wing may want the Indiana Pacers, but he isn't what they need. Lance Stephenson, good, bad, or otherwise, is whatever he is in the moment largely because of those who are around him. Two seasons ago, the erratic wing was the benefactor of a budding star's gravitational pull, a veteran's highly efficient pick-and-pop shooting, a malleable guard's willingness to wait in the corner, a center's ability to erase his mistakes at the rim, and his coach's abundantly generous leeway. Within the bounds of this highly favorable environment, Stephenson's defensive miscues...

NBA Free Agency: Lance Stephenson pining for Pacers return, Roy Hibbert to join Hornets

Two former Pacers were a big part of the Fourth of July NBA free agency frenzy with reports of a potential reunion between Lance and the Pacers along with a new destination for Hibbert. The Pacers don't need Lance Stephenson, yet there he is. Hey, guess who could return to the Pacers. https://t.co/ndSMFAquyy — Rey-Rey (@TheNoLookPass) July 5, 2016 Despite the fact a return seems odd, there has been plenty of noise indicating the Pacers are seriously considering a reunion with the former shooting guard who started in the Eastern Conference Finals. But unless the Pacers have a deal...

Why Memphis Should Invest In Lance Stephenson

Lance Stephenson already proved his worth this past season after being traded to Memphis. He's proven he can work in the Grizzlies' system alongside players like Marc Gasol and Tony Allen. Now the Grizz have a decision to make. Should they re-sign Lance or let him go in free agency? It was announced this week that the Memphis Grizzlies declined Lance Stephenson's $9.4mm option and are therefore allowing him to test the waters of free agency. This move could be an indicator that Memphis wants to target a big free agent and could not afford to keep Lance to do so. If the right chips don't...

Former Clipper Lance Stephenson to Become a Free Agent

Memphis has declined their team option on Lance. News came out on Monday that the Memphis Grizzlies opted to decline their team option for Lance Stephenson's $9.4 million salary next season.  This move gives Memphis a massive amount of cap room which they could potentially use to re-sign Mike Conley and add another key free agent.  Whether the Grizzlies find a suitable target for that room or not, they could attempt to re-sign Lance for a lower amount than his $9.4 million option would have given him. Lance, of course, was highly successful for the Indiana Pacers before leaving in free...

Should the Nets go after Lance Stephenson?

Lance Stephenson often gets matched with the Nets in hypothetical trade/free agency situations. After all, Stephenson went to Lincoln High School in Brooklyn's Coney Island and his nickname is  "born ready."  And he's stlll young, 25 years old. But are the Nets ready for Lance Stephenson, Brooklyn background or not?  It's a question bound to be raised now that he's once again a free agent. Stephenson had high expectations coming out of Lincoln -- the highest scorer not just in New York City history, but New York State as well.  Overall, with a few exceptions, he hasn't been able to live...

Memphis Grizzlies Decline Lance Stephenson's Team Option, According to The Vertical

Shams Charania of Yahoo's The Vertical reports that the Grizzlies have decided to not opt in to Lance Stephenson's $9.4 million contract. In some not so shocking, although to some surely disappointing news, Lance Stephenson's future with the Memphis Grizzlies just got a little more uncertain. From The Vertical's Shams Charania- Vertical Sources: Memphis has declined Lance Stephenson's $9.4M team option. He'll be free agent. Interest for return, interest elsewhere. — Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) June 27, 2016 This of course does not instantly mean that Lance Stephenson will not be...
