Under terms of the deal Stephenson will make $9 million next season and in 2015-16, with a slight raise in the 2016-17 team option.
I like it for Charlotte. I like what they are doing there.
So he gave up 5 yrs at 44million for 3 yrs at 27 million?!. Either hes bad at math or he doesn't like indiana
Love this move. That defense is going to be ferocious.
I'd previously spoken against us signing Stephenson, but at 9 million a year I can't complain or argue. Great signing. I bet we might see a corresponding move involving hendo or neal at some point. That's a deep rotation at SG especially having drafted hairston. backup center could still be upgraded.
nope, he was an unrestricted free agent.

I hope y'all enjoy Lance on a 3 year loan! He has a chance to be a playmaker but if he is the #1 option good luck.
Awesome signing. Love it. This team could really make some noise next year.
Should be interesting to see how Lance and Al Jefferson get along.
We are no doubt a Top 5 seed in the East now!
Lance Will be this generations Grand Mama! Really looking forward to the Hornets this season...
