Former Los Angeles Laker Lance Stephenson is believed to be eyeing an NBA return. Stephenson last played for the Liaoning Flying Leopards of the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) but the Coronavirus outbreak has derailed the league's season.
As per the latest reports, the CBA's proceedings have been paused and all the foreign players have been released from their duties.
Across the 508 games he has played in the NBA, Stephenson averaged an ordinary 8.6 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 2.9 assists per game. However, his stint in China saw him register impressive numbers in points (26.7), field goal percentage (52%) and rebounds (7.4) per game.
Whether the Lakers would be interested in re-incorporating Stephenson into their ranks remains to be seen. He averaged 7.2 points, 3.2 rebounds, and 2.1 assists per game during his single season for the purple-and-gold, making a negligible impact overall.Published 22 Feb 2020, 23:24 IST
