Lance Stephenson hangs up on Indianapolis radio show

Lance Stephenson

Former Indiana Pacers guard Lance Stephenson joined a local radio broadcast for an interview on Monday.

After spending four seasons with the Pacers, Stephenson turned down a lucrative contract from the team and left to play in Charlotte.

The host of the Query and Schultz show,  Jake Query, asked Stephenson about playing in Indiana, and the situations that caused his departure.

When asked if he left because he could become a free agent sooner by signing with the Hornets, the line went quiet before disconnecting.

Stephenson did not call back into the show but later his representatives said he would come back for an encore interview Tuesday.

Show host Derek Schultz released a statement on the shows website prior to the confirmation for a second interview:

It’s a shame because we still have so many unanswered questions. How serious did the conversations get between he and Pacers this past summer?

What is his relationship like today with Larry Bird and Paul George?  Does Stephenson feel like he’s to blame for the way the last two seasons have gone?

Alas, we’re left wondering.

For whatever it’s worth, I have always pulled for Stephenson to do well and will continue to do so.  I hope he can take advantage of another chance in the Big Easy.

It’s the right thing to do if Stephenson does indeed come back for a second interview. It would take place prior to the Pacers preseason opener against Stephenson’s new team, the New Orleans Pelicans.
