Stephenson averaged 13.8 points, 7.2 rebounds and 4.6 assists his a year ago in IN, numbers he hasn't really came close to in his time after the Pacers. The third year is a team option.

The 6-foot-5 Stuckey averaged 7.2 points, 2.2 rebounds and 2.2 assists this season.

Stephenson lost much of the mojo that garnered him national attention when he left IN for Charlotte.

Stephenson last played for the Minnesota Timberwolves who released him following his second 10-day contract with the team.

Stephenson was selected by the Pacers with the 40th pick in the 2010 NBA Draft and went on to play four seasons with the team and was a big part in the Pacers mid-00 teams that had a fierce rivalry with LeBron James' Miami Heat championship teams.

The Minnesota Timberwolves were the latest team to give Lance Stephenson an audition, but after offering him two 10-day contracts, the Wolves chose to let Stephenson go.

The move comes the moments after the Pacers waived guard Rodney Stuckey to create roster space.

Now in need of a bench creator, there was no better time to turn to an old friend: Lance Stephenson.

Despite bouncing around so much, Stephenson's play hasn't been bad.

While Stephenson had a rocky first tour in IN, he is just 26 years old and is likely coming to the Pacers with something to prove. George knows what his former teammate can bring, and he's clearly excited to have him back.

Stephenson was a deft ball-handler and capable playmaker for the dominant Pacers teams between 2012 and 2014.

With the Pacers battling to make the playoffs, they needed to fill the position, prompting a deal with Stephenson.
