Lance Stephenson Signs With Hornets

The NBA's leader in triple-doubles is moving to the Charlotte Hornets.

Lance Stephenson is leaving his days with the Pacers behind him and moving into the 2-guard slot on Michael Jordan's team.

Stephenson signed a 3-year, $27-million contract that includes a team option for the last year.

He turned down an offer from the Pacers that would have paid him $44-million over 5 years, saying that he would have been underpaid.

You'll remember Stephenson's antics last season when he blew in Lebron James' ear during the Eastern Conference Finals.

Stephenson will be in his 5th NBA year next season.

He averages 9.1 points per game and .325 per-cent from beyond the arc.
