Lance Stephenson Heading Overseas?

by July 22, 2011

This could be a great opportunity for Lance Stephenson to become a better-rounded and more mature player, or… it might not. Adam Zagoria reports: “‘Born Ready’ is heading overseas. Indiana Pacers guard Lance Stephenson will play in either China or Italy during the NBA lockout, according to his agent. ‘We’re working on a couple things and we’ve narrowed it down to Italy and China for now,’ Alberto Ebanks told by phone. ‘He’s excited about just getting a run going while the lockout is in place. I think it’s important to stay in basketball shape so he’s about to bust a move.’ One key element of the deal would be a clause allowing Stephenson, the former Lincoln High School star who played sparingly as a rookie with the Pacers, to return to the NBA as soon as the lockout ends. ‘It could happen shortly, it could happen in the next month,’ Ebanks said.”
