INDIANAPOLIS (AP) The Indiana Pacers are bringing back Lance Stephenson.
More than two years after the brash 6-foot-5 guard left in free agency, the Pacers re-signed Stephenson on Thursday - just in time to fill a gaping hole as they try to make a final playoff push. Stephenson is scheduled to appear at a news conference in Indianapolis on Friday afternoon and is expected to make his first game appearance Sunday at Cleveland.
"We're very happy to have Lance back as part of our team," president of basketball operations Larry Bird said in a statement released by the team. "We always knew he wanted to come back here, and we feel now is the right time, not only for the rest of this season, but moving forward."
