Report: Timberwolves signing Lance Stephenson to 10-day contract
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.

Lance Stephenson is signing a 10-day contract with the Minnesota Timberwolves, league sources tell The Vertical.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) February 7, 2017
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?
