    Default Lance Stephenson to sign with Charlotte- 3 years $27 million

    Chris Broussard @Chris_Broussard 4 minutes ago

    3 yrs $27 million Lance to Charlotte, "@Rick Bonnell: The Charlotte Hornets will sign Lance Stephenson, the Observer has learned."

    Chris Broussard @Chris_Broussard 2 minutes ago

    Last yr for Lance is team option
    Sam Amick @sam_amick 2 minutes ago

    Lance Stephenson will sign a 3-year, $27 million deal with Charlotte, I can confirm. Third year team option. @Rick Bonnell first.
    Took a much worse offer from a lesser team.

    Slap in the face to Larry Bird. He had no intention of coming back.

    That's why I posted the Sam Amick tweet confirming it via his own source.

    And it was't Broussard that broke it, it was Rick Bonnell, who covers the Hornets for a living. Broussard just tweeted it.

    OK this is a knee jerk reaction from me and probably wrong but it seems to me he was pissed off with our offer that he chose a barely better offer from a much worse team. Lance Stephenson maturity in a nutshell maybe.

    Weird. I'm ok with it, because I think the team will be better without him. But, that's kind of crazy. Do you think he preferred a shorter contract??

    See here's a thought, on Charlotte, maybe Lance thinks he can put up big numbers the next few years, and then get a max contract after two yearS??

    Wow... I know the writing was on the wall, but wasn't expecting him to take a deal below the one Bird offered. :smh:

    Bird offered him 5 years at almost the same rate. You think he couldn't have gotten two from Indiana?

    WTF? Can't be mad at the front office or ownership for him taking a worse offer. The Pacers were guaranteeing him $26 more million for Christ's sake. So to get back at Bird, he shoots his bank account in the foot? I'm just glad it's not some situation where the Pacers got edges out by a slightly better deal.

    Especially with a team option on the third year. I think we'd have been all over that.

    Just on money terms it is questionable for Lance. 5 years 44m. vs 3 years at 27 million. Assuming both are true. Just on the money which would you take? Is two years guaranteed worth $200,000 per year? Clearly no.

    1. so either lance was offended at our offer and decided he wasn't coming back.

    2. Or lance decided fir whatever reason he wanted to move on elsewhere,

    3. or he really just wanted a shorter deal because he thinks he can get a much bigger deal in three years.

    But if it is number three don't you think the pacers would have agreed to a shorter deal if lance told them that was what he wanted?


    obviously a 4th reason is he thinks he can be the main perimeter player there. And cannot ever be here with PG

    I had a feeling he wanted a deal like this if he wasn't going to get paid $10-$13 million/per season. He's going to go out there and think only about putting up the biggest numbers he can in order to get a bigger paycheck after two years. Lance is all about the money, and all about himself. It's a shame.

    All this means us he was never coming back. Dumb decision. Have fun struggling to make the playoffs. We can move on.

    And you don't think he'd have gotten a shorter deal from the Pacers if he wanted it?

    The only thing I can think of is that it is a flat 9 9 9 deal, which is an extra 1.2M in the first year and (I think) 800K in the second. It is definitely a little better money wise, but that team option is what makes me go WTF?

    I obviously wanted him back big time, but him making a pretty dumb decision makes it a little easier to digest.

    So where do we go next? Can we still get the Dragic trade off the ground? Really going to have to spend that money somewhere.

    Pacers lost some talent here, which in general is rarely a good thing. However I do believe there are some current Pacers players relieved today, some of the core players. We'll see what if anything the pacers can do now to replace a starter, but I am not panickng.

    Do we try to get a point guard and move Hill to the two. Or replace a shooting guard.


    also an obvious question, anyone on the Hornets we might like to do a sign and trade?

    Yeah, I think that's going to take a lot of the steam out of the rants. Only the "keep Lance at all costs" folks will be arguing that the Pacers screwed up by not dumping Roy for no salary in return and offering Lance that max money. Everyone else will probably be a bit more rational if this was Lance's ultimate contract.

    No, I DEFINITELY think he could have gotten this deal with the Pacers. I think he was "insulted" from the Pacers offer for no reason, and this was his scapegoat for the opportunity to be the ball dominate player he wants to be.

    If Jordan wants to shed Gerald Henderson, maybe. He's the only player that would make sense.

    Of course Lance could sign his deal in Charlotte in a few hours and make this all moot.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.
