    Larry Bird qouted March 25th. 2015:

    Bird: I wanted to keep our group together because in the summer, if David and Roy opt out, we're back to zero, really. We don't have that much, so you leave your options open. If we did make a trade, I didn't want to take on a lot of contracts -- because that's what usually happens. Plus, I liked my guys. They're playing well. If we keep the core together and Paul comes back healthy, we'll be right back to where we were.

    Pretty sure you can still release players, you just have to pay out their contract. Considering this was a 10 day contract, I think he could be released without it costing a whole lot.

    I could be wrong, but I know the Cavs just released Bogut right after his injury.

    I think they'll just let the 10 day contract expire and it's over. The idea of the 2 10 day contracts is to be able to get a good look at a player without the risk of a long term contract. It sucks for both Lance and the Wolves that they couldn't do that due to his injuries. Lance is starting to look a little injury prone which may be just another reason to scare teams away.

    ESPN says the Wolves aren't re-signing him. Makes sense given that he hasn't been healthy and they aren't really in the playoff picture. Another opportunity for Bird to take him.

    I like him over Stuckey, mostly because Stuckey hasn't been good other than that one (contract) year. No doubt he brings energy, I like how he always hyped up PG when he was being too passive. Monta does that sometimes but not to the same effect.

    How many teams has he now been on? Nobody wants him but China is still an option.

    Based on what? The multiple multi-year contracts he turned down?

    Lance Stephenson is like a cockroach on PD.

    Absolutely nothing can kill threads about him.

    I think at this point this is the reality for Lance. I seriously doubt if he gets another opportunity this year and he has very little chance of getting a contract offer this summer unless it's a non guaranteed vet min. contract for a training camp spot. Lance's options may be down to China or working his way back via the D league like Tyler is trying to do.

    His injuries have been his biggest issue. There have been many teams interested and a number have signed him. The Pacers should dish Paul George since he isn't patient enough to help build a contender and pick up Lance for pocket change. If I thought Paul would sign with the Pacers I would feel differently. You have to know when to hold'em and when to fold'em. It is definitely time to move Paul. He has given more than enough warning signs.
