Re: Lance Stephenson Signed
On Stephenson:

The Indianapolis Star reports:

He played so well in summer league, the Pacers signed the 6-5 guard to a multiyear deal Thursday when one-year contracts are more common for second-round picks. The Pacers do not release contract terms.

Stephenson was the Pacers' second leading scorer in summer league action at 14.8 points per game. With a 73.3 field goal percentage, he was the top shooter among the eight teams in the Orlando, Fla., league. He also averaged 1.5 assists and 2.3 rebounds in 23 minutes per game.

"I believe he surprised some people not only with his ability to handle the ball, but his ability to really see the floor in addition to just make plays happen," Pacers general manager David Morway said. "He's a basketball player. He's got a very, very strong body. He's got a chance to help us in the future.

"He's got a chance to develop into a player that can be part of our core group."

Re: Lance Stephenson Signed
3 years guaranteed, 4th year option. I assume it's a team option. Not bad at all for a 2nd round pick. Also guarantees Bird rights.

Re: Lance Stephenson Signed
I think the Pacers had a great draft, one of the best actually. There are a lot of solid pieces. Paul George, Lance Stephonson, and Magnum Rolle. Lance could be the starting PG, you could play rolle at PF and George is a Granger Clone but a good piece.

Re: Lance Stephenson Signed
I feel as if Lance has the most UNdeveloped potential in his draft class.
I hope that it develops because he is a big scoring threat
