Free agency in the NBA just keeps getting weirder and weirder.
But this one? This one is … odd.
According to several reports, Lance Stephenson will be signing with the Lakers on a one-year, $4.5 million deal.
Stevenson of course was LeBron’s foil when the former was playing with the Indiana Pacers as the two squared off time and time again in the playoffs.
James has of course had success over the past few years while Stephenson has bounced around quite a bit, playing with the Charlotte Hornets, Memphis Grizzlies, New Orleans Pelicans, and Minnesota Timberwolves.
The Lakers have also signed their rookie Mo Wagner, and re-signed Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. It’s unclear whether Los Angeles is still a potential destination for San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard, but it looks like the team around LeBron is taking shape.
