According to Shams Charania of The Vertical, Lance Stephenson will sign a 10-day contract with the Minnesota Timberwolves.
The 26-year-old established himself as one of the NBA’s best young players with the Indiana Pacers before leaving via free agency in 2014 for the Charlotte Hornets. Stephenson’s career has spiraled since. The former budding superstar has played for four different teams in the last three seasons.
The artist formerly known as “Born Ready” participated in the Cleveland Cavaliers free agent workout last week, but according to ESPN’s Dave McMenamin, Jordan Farmar emerged as the favorite from the mini-camp.
The Timberwolves make number five. It’s ten-day contract season, and Stephenson is the beneficiary. A season-ending ACL injury to Zach LaVine forced Minnesota to look for help on the wing. The Timberwolves need help on defense. If Lance can give them anything there, he’ll get a shot.
