July 16, 2014 0



Welp,what are the Pacers going to do now? After turning down a $44 million dollar deal to stay a member of the Indiana Pacers, Lance Stephenson has signed a 3 year $27 million dollar deal with the Charlotte Hornets.

According to the Charlotte Observer:

under terms of the agreement, Stephenson will make $9 million in 2014-15 and $9 million in 2015-16. Stephenson will get a slight raise in 2016-17 if the Hornets pick up the team option.

Stephenson fills an obvious need, as the Hornets were weak offensively at the shooting guard and small forward positions. The 6-foot-5 Stephenson had a breakthrough season statistically, averaging 13.8 points, 7.2 rebounds and 4.7 assists. He also shot 49 percent from the field and 35 percent from 3-point range.
