Pacers Sign Lance Stephenson To 3-Year, $12 Million Deal

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

Terms of the deal were not disclosed by the team, but ESPN reported that it was a three-year, $12 million deal. Stephenson, who is coming off stints with the New Orleans Pelicans and Minnesota Timberwolves this season, is expected to return to the place that made him a household name - Indiana. In his first four seasons with Indiana, Stephenson averaged 9.1 points and 4.4 rebounds. The first two years of the deal are guaranteed, while there's a team option on the third.

More than two years after the brash 6-foot-5 guard left in free agency, the Pacers re-signed Stephenson on Thursday - just in time to fill a gaping hole as they try to make a final playoff push.

Stuckey has been plagued by injuries all season.

The Indiana Pacers are bringing back a familiar face.

So when veteran guard Rodney Stuckey went down with an injury that was going to hold him out for at least a month, even more air released out of the already deflated Pacers.

Awesome Moments From The New Justice League Trailer
The first official Justice League trailer has dropped, and it boasts awesome action scenes and a hint of narrative flow. According to Zack Snyder , "Ray's story is in a lot of the ways the heart of the movie". "All that comes into play".

The Pacers (37-37) are now occupying the seventh seed in the Eastern Conference standings.

A 10-year National Basketball Association veteran, Stuckey resurrected his career after joining the Pacers in 2014 on a veteran minimum deal.

So, with Stuckey released and the Pacers in need of some life, it was only right to turn back to the former headline grabbing, triple-double recording, wind blowing Stephenson to help fuel their fire a bit.

The Pacers still are battling for an Eastern Conference playoff bid as they now occupy the seventh seed.

IN will also be without Al Jefferson for at least two weeks, after the big man suffered an ankle sprain in the same game on Sunday.
