Veteran wing Lance Stephenson has not suited up in the NBA since he was a member of the Los Angeles Lakers last season.

That could soon change. According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, Stephenson is in talks to rejoin his original Indiana Pacers squad.

Stephenson, 29, played for the Pacers from 2010-14 and rejoined the squad from 2016-18. He had his best seasons in Indiana, averaging north of nine points to go with 4.6 rebounds and 3.1 assists.

This would be Indiana’s way of adding to an already deep bench as the team prepares for the stretch run. The Pacers head into Sunday’s game against the Dallas Mavericks at 38-25 and as the fifth seed in the Eastern Conference.
