After moving around during the past three seasons, free agent swingman Lance Stephenson is returning to the Indiana Pacers.
Stephenson averages 8.7 points, 4.2 rebounds and 3 assists per game for his career.
Stephenson has played for the Pelicans and Timberwolves this season, but both stints ended with injuries. The injury created a scenario for the Pacers to release Stuckey prior to the end of the regular season which invokes a rare provision in Stuck's contract which Zach Lowe mention in this podcast (47 minute mark).
The Minnesota Timberwolves were the latest team to give Lance Stephenson an audition, but after offering him two 10-day contracts, the Wolves made a decision to let Stephenson go.
