Stephenson averaged 13.8 points, 7.2 rebounds and 4.6 assists his a year ago in IN, numbers he hasn't really came close to in his time after the Pacers.
Adam Zagoria of FanRag Sports confirmed the move. The Pacers are his third team this season alone.
The 6-foot-5 Stuckey averaged 7.2 points, 2.2 rebounds and 2.2 assists this season.

The Minnesota Timberwolves were the latest team to give Lance Stephenson an audition, but after offering him two 10-day contracts, the Wolves made a decision to let Stephenson go. This is Stephenson's second stint in IN, as he spent his first four years in the NBA with the team after being drafted in the second round of the 2010 NBA Draft.
The Pacers' roster now stands at 14 players. Bird, as well as some of the leaders on the team, kept a close eye on Stephenson and gave him a steady stream of guidance.
Question is, does that player still exist?
He's played for five other teams since his departure in 2014. "We look forward to having a long relationship with him, because we know what he can bring to our franchise, both on and off the court". He recently signed a 10-day contract with the Timberwolves but his stint was also short-lived in Minnesota. He lasted one year with Charlotte.
The Indiana Pacers, a bottom four seed in the East playoff race, needed every little bit of help they could get in hopes to close the regular season out strong.
