Lance Stephenson traded to ClippersThe Los Angeles Clippers announced today the team has acquired guard/forward Lance Stephenson from the Charlotte Hornets in exchange for forward Matt Barnes and center Spencer Hawes.

Stephenson didn't fit in on the Hornets. His shooting was a mess, and his defense didn't mesh with the rest of the squad. The team went in the wrong direction. It certainly wasn't all Stephenson's fault, but clearly it was not a good fit. So now Lance is a Clipper.

Stephenson, 24, appeared in 61 games (25 starts) last season for Charlotte, averaging 8.2 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.9 assists in 25.8 minutes. He spent four seasons in Indiana before signing with the Hornets prior to the 2014-15 season. His best statistical season came in 2013-14 when he averaged 13.8 points, 7.2 rebounds and 4.6 assists over 78 games (all starts) for the Pacers. Stephenson appeared in 42 postseason games (38 starts) for Indiana, averaging 10.6 points, 6.5 rebounds and 3.4 assists in 33.1 minutes.

Originally drafted by the Pacers with the 40th overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft out of the University of Cincinnati, Stephenson averaged 12.3 points and 5.4 rebounds for the Bearcats in 34 games (32 starts) in his only collegiate season.

A native of Brooklyn, NY, the 6’5” guard/forward helped his high school team win city basketball championships in all four years of high school, and is still New York State’s all-time leading scorer in high school basketball.

Hawes saw action in 73 games for the Clippers in 2014-15, starting 15. He averaged 5.8 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 17.5 minutes. His best statistical season came a year earlier in 2013-14, when he played in 53 games for the 76ers and 27 games for the Cavaliers following a mid-season trade. Overall, he averaged career highs of 13.2 points, 8.3 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 30.9 minutes. He shot .456 from the field (403-883), a career-high .416 from beyond the three-point line (128-308) and a career-best .783 from the free-throw line (119-152), while also posting career highs in both field goals and three-point field goals.

Barnes is a 12-year NBA veteran who has played in 779 career games for the Clippers, Kings, Knicks, 76ers, Warriors, Suns, Magic and Lakers. He has career averages of 8.1 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 23.1 minutes. For his career, he has shot .448 from the field (2339-5222), .338 from beyond the three-point line (776-2298) and .735 from the free-throw line (850-1157). He has also seen action in 79 career playoff games for the Warriors, Magic, Lakers and Clippers, with averages of 7.4 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 24.6 minutes.
