Pacers Ink 2nd Round Pick Lance Stephenson

The Indiana Pacers signed Lance Stephenson to a multi-year deal.

The Breakdown
Stephenson played well in the Orlando summer league and could be a sleeper pick. The Pacers aren't particularly stacked at either guard spot. If Brandon Rush or Dahntay Jones struggle, Stephenson could easily take some of their playing time. I'm not sure how ready Stephenson is to run the point, but he could also see minutes at PG if the Pacers are unable to acquire a high caliber point guard. Stephenson is a player I would look at late in a deep league draft. He could be this year's Marcus Thornton.
