    Default Pacers Sign Lance Stephenson

    http://www.nba.com/pacers/news/steph...ns_100722.html

    The Indiana Pacers announced Thursday they have signed second-round draft pick Lance Stephenson to a multi-year contract.

    Per club policy, terms of the contract were not disclosed.

    Stephenson, a 6-5, 210-pound guard, was the 40th overall pick in June’s NBA Draft.

    The 2010 Big East Rookie of the Year from Cincinnati recently played for the Pacers’ summer league team in Orlando where in four games he was the Pacers’ second-leading scorer at 14.8 ppg.

    He also led the eight-team league in field goal percentage at .733 (22 of 30) of those players with 10 or more field goal attempts, earning all-league honorable mention honors.

    They're 2 different players. They each will get their own contracts. No reason to have to sign them both on the same day. Let's not make this out to be something that it isn't.

    Not making it out to be anything really..just it's interesting. They'll probably get the exact same contract..

    Reading into stuff is what we do best. I really hope we have a great starter for years to come, but I would settle for a Stuckey type player.

    I think it's possible Stephenson may get a LITTLE more than Magnum, but you're probably right. I would bet that the main reason Mags isn't signed yet is because he just recently got back to Indy a couple of days ago. He'll probably be signed within the next week, I assume.

    Ditto...partner!!!

    I nearly 'freaked out' when they announced LB picked Paul George and then I really 'freaked out' when they picked Lance Stephenson (a lottery pick IMHO) and then traded for Magnum Rolle. After watching all three draft picks in the Summer League, I can already see the future is gonna be more brighter in Indy land than it's been in a long long while.

    Throw in our All-Star Danny, Hans, Rush, Hibbert, Dahntay, and AJ Price (plus Murph, Dun-Dun, McBob, and TJ) we're finally gonna be long & lean, athletic, and very competitive each and every night especially after this team has developed some chemistry after playing about 20-25 games (against every Eastern Conference opponent at least once).

    Go Pacers!!!

    Note: My icon is Lance Stephenson DUNKING over Marcus Cousins in practice.

    M.Grady said on a 1070 update that the Pacers were wouking on a Rolle contract, but were working w/ the cap situation to get it done.
    Not entirely sure what that means, but I would imagine they are trying to sign both & stay under by the vet min for a future FA PG signing.

    I think it was so shocking because of the whole alleged "charcture issues"

    I think Bird finally realized good community guys are great, but we also need some athletic "dogs" (hungry attacking guys)

    Cant wait to get my Stephenson jeresy

    By the way, they had a pool on the sports radio here in Chicago about at what age should you NOT rock a jersey anymore

    The thought was after 30 , no grown man should wear a NBA/MLB/NFL jersey

    I admantly disagree as I hope I am rockin jerseys in my 80's (Lord Willing)

    If the Pacers sign Magnum Rolle,that would fill the last roster spot. The Pacers would have to cut someone or trade 2 players for 1 to make a FA signing.
    Pacers,baby!

    I wonder if the Pacers are considering cutting Solo in order to free up a roster spot.

    with Foster, Roy, Troy, Hans, and McBob, they don't really need him.

    We could cut Price or McBob but the Pacer's organization likes them both. However, Solo isn't in the plans for the future, and he got fined for something last season that might have suggested chemistry issues. Just a thought. He'd be the cheapest to cut, and the least needed. Just a thought, when they are mentioning salary issues.

    That's assuming they bring back AJ, which I would guess they will.

    I'd cut Solo, just so we have one spot open.

    Yep.
    I keep waiting to see/hear Solo being traded to a team under the cap for either a late pick or cash.

    I think Solo could play a backup role on a contending team. His contract is super small and he is somewhat serviceable.

    Adam Zagoria has some contract details
    http://www.zagsblog.com/2010/07/22/p...lti-year-deal/

    The deal includes two years guaranteed and two years at a team option, a Pacers source said.

    Stephenson will earn the rookie minimum of $473,604 next season before jumping up to $762,195 in his second year.
    There's also this;
    Indiana is trying Stephenson, 19, out at the point guard spot, but the source said the team would likely try and trade for a veteran.

    “They’re looking to make a trade for a veteran point,” the source said.

    Rolle should get signed. If we make a trade, which I am not thinking will happen, then it will just have to be a two for one.
    I really don't think there is anyone left to trade with right now. This is probably going to play out until the trade deadline.

    Four years for a second-rounder is very, very unusual. Looks like they're really high on him.
