Huge loss for the Pacers. Think about it: Lance Stephenson played like an All-Star and the Pacers couldn't make the Finals with him. Without him, they're significantly worse. The Hornets (and the rest of the East) wins with this deal.
I presume he took a shorter deal because he (as does LeBron and perhaps other free agents) have an eye on the cap going way up after a new TV deal is negotiated in two years. Still, it says something about how wary GMs are about Bad Lance that he didn't get more, even in a short-term deal.
Couldn't agree more with SMH! Big Al at 13 mil is an absolute steal, so is Lance at 9 mil. Their core of Big Al, Kemba, and Lance combined make 25 mil. Compare that to someone like Bosh making 24 mil alone. Jordan completely turned around the worst team in the league, getting All-Star level talent to come to Charlotte for cheap, great owner!
