The Brooklyn native Lance Stephenson has signed with the Charlotte Hornets, according Rick Bonnell from Charlotte Observer.
The Contract I would say is a steal and very cheap for his talents, 3-years 27 million with a team option on the last year he is set to make 9 million 2014-2015 and 9 million again for 2015-2016 if the Hornets pick up the team option he would make a little bit over 9 million in 2016-2017.
Lance Stephenson has that killer instinct that the Hornets need, he can bring a new attitude to the locker room. Many people try to knock Lance for his on the court behavior, the things he has done like blowing in LeBron’s ear to doing the choke sign to LeBron some years ago. But I find that to be overblown I think it’s funny and a good way to try to get into a player’s head, even LeBron found him annoying and wondered how he did he hold back from doing something to Lance. Lance Stephenson should have been a All-Star this past season but no one knows how he didn’t make it but he carried that chip on his shoulder all season and I hope he continues to do that this season.
Statistically he had his best season by far. Lance averaged 13.8 points ,7.2 rebounds ,and 4.6 assist Lance led the league in triple doubles with five, Lance also led all shooting guards in rebounds.
