The Cavaliers reportedly narrowed their playmaker search to players willing to accept 10-day contracts, leaving Jordan Farmar and Lance Stephenson from their four-man workout. Farmar got the edge, though Cleveland hasn’t yet signed him.
As for Stephenson, he’s headed elsewhere.
Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports:
Stephenson could play in Minnesota, with Zach LaVine out for the year. But with the Timberwolves so far out of playoff position (4.5 games and five teams), it’s a curious fit. Minnesota president/coach Tom Thibodeau is trying to establish a culture in his first season, and Stephenson, while talented, has often brought attitude problems with him.
Still, it’s just a 10-day deal. What’s the worst that could happen?
