Up to this point, Stuckey had missed 33 games this season due to injury, far more than anyone else on the Pacers. He will be playing for IN once again.
According to ESPN.com's Chris Haynes, the contract is worth $12 million with the first two years guaranteed and the third being a team option. Stephenson was a regular starter, and he helped lead the team to the Eastern Conference semifinals and Eastern Conference finals in 2013 and 2014, respectively. George play was up in the month of March. Stuckey was averaging 7.2 points, 2.2 assists, and 2.2 rebounds a game, but was often injured. He is doing everything correctly. In 26 games with the Grizzlies, he scored 14.2 points per contest.
They have still been losing games.
Immediately, this means the Pacers now have room to sign another player as they had 15 National Basketball Association contracts before today's move.
What the Indiana Pacers need right now is a shake-up of some kind - they are in a rut and have no real chance of making noise in the upcoming NBA Playoffs.
Despite bouncing around so much, Stephenson's play hasn't been bad.

The two are on the verge of being reunited and could turn out to be a dynamic duo again. The scoreboard inside the FedEx Forum reflected the rather embarrassing effort the Pacers produced: A 110-97 thrashing for the team's fourth loss in its last five games.
Earlier on this season, it looked like Lance would finally find a full-time home in NOLA before a groin injury that would have him out for six to 10 weeks saw the Pelicans waive him.
The Pacers are now a losing team, going 37-38 on the season, tied with the Miami Heat.
Stephenson was Indiana's second-round draft pick in 2010.
Maybe Stephenson's arrival can energise the team into a winning attitude.
