Former Los Angeles Lakers Guard Lance Stephenson Eying NBA Return
If there is one thing we’ve learned from his season over in China was that Lance can still make ’em dance.
Lance Stephenson hasn’t played in the NBA all year, after spending the majority of the season with the Liaoning Flying Leopards of the Chinese Basketball Association. The 29-year old guard was the team’s leading scorer averaging 26.7 points while shooting 52.2 percent from the field across 29 games.
“He’s willing to work out to prove his value,” Yahoo Sports! Chris Haynes commented on Stephenson, who is eager to make an NBA return.

Still capable of providing a spark off the bench, Stephenson was a valuable part of the Indiana Pacers earlier in his NBA career. He has since played with the Charlotte Hornets, Los Angeles Clippers, Memphis Grizzlies, New Orleans Pelicans, Minnesota Timberwolves and Lakers.
Stephenson averaged 7.2 points and 2.1 assists across 68 games last season as a Laker.
