Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reported that Lance Stephenson’s contract is only partially guaranteed at $100,000 this season.
Born Ready signed for $1.22 million so needless to say neither amount screams big minutes. We weren’t adjusting the projections for the backcourt and wing players surrounding Stephenson before this report and we certainly aren’t doing so afterwards. If he plays, he could see 20-25 mpg in a better case scenario and that’s never been enough to float standard league value.
