Lance Stephenson has been out of the NBA for over two years now and feels it’s time for a comeback.
Stephenson held a private workout in front of NBA teams in Las Vegas on Friday morning, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports. Representatives from the Bucks, Nuggets, 76ers, and Nets all attended.
Stephenson told Haynes a few weeks back that he is motivated to earn another shot in the NBA. A nine-year NBA veteran, Stephenson helped the Indiana Pacers reach back-to-back Eastern Conference Finals in 2013 and 2014.
Stephenson last played in the league during the 2018-19 season with the Los Angeles Lakers. In 68 games (three starts), he averaged 7.2 points on 42.6%/37.1%/68.5% shooting splits, to go along with 3.2 rebounds and 2.1 assists per 16.5 minutes.
If Stephenson has any game left in him, he will certainly be welcomed back into the league. Stephenson is still only 30 years old. If somehow Stephenson landed on his hometown team the Brooklyn Nets, that would make for one hell of a story.
