Pacers complete reunion, sign Lance Stephenson to three-year deal

Amazingly, Stephenson earned a three-year deal from IN, according to a report by Adam Zagoria.

Adam Zagoria of FanRag Sports confirmed the move.

At his peak, Stephenson averaged 14 points, five assists and seven rebounds for the Pacers during the 2013-14 season.

He then signed a one-year deal with the Pacers in 2014.

Stephenson with the Hornets did not work out and he has since become an National Basketball Association journeyman playing for the Los Angeles Clippers, Memphis Grizzlies, New Orleans Pelicans and Minnesota Timberwolves the last two seasons. Bird, as well as some of the leaders on the team, kept a close eye on Stephenson and gave him a steady stream of guidance.

The Pacers waived guard Rodney Stuckey on Wednesday, clearing the way for Stephenson to return.

The Pacers drafted Stephens in 2010 and he was a key component in their Eastern Conference finals matchup against LeBron James and the Miami Heat.

However, with the length of Stuckey's injury (four to six weeks) and the team trying to make the playoffs, this might play better among the players than just a cold, heartless, only for the money-type of cut.

Question is, does that player still exist? "We look forward to having a long relationship with him, because we know what he can bring to our franchise, both on and off the court". He never got to completely fill Stephenson's void, as George was hurt in his first year and the last year of the West-Hibbert era.
