The Indiana Pacers are bringing back a familiar face just in time for the playoffs and just in time for him to agitate the heck out of their opponents.
That would be Lance Stephenson, who famously blew in LeBron James' ear during a playoff game back in 2014. Stephenson is returning to the team he entered the league with back in 2010-11, according to a report by Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.
Since, Stephenson has played for five different teams in three years: the Hornets, Clippers, Grizzlies, Pelicans and Timberwolves. Minnesota was his last stop where he played just six games. The Pacers are his third team this season alone.
The 26-year-old guard now rejoins a struggling Pacers team that currently sits seventh in the Eastern Conference with six losses in their last 10 games. They have had major problems on the road this season and that does not bode well for the postseason. The signing is worth noting for Wizards fans, given the Pacers could match up with them in the first round of the playoffs.
