Pacers decline option on G Stephenson

The Indiana Pacers declined guard Lance Stephenson’s team option for the 2018-19 season, making him an unrestricted free agent when the negotiation period begins Sunday.”This was a very difficult decision, but as free agency begins on July 1, we want to have flexibility so that we can prepare for all of our available options,” Pacers president of basketball operations Kevin Pritchard said in a statement.The Pacers have not ruled out re-signing Stephenson at a later date, but they are expected to pursue Tyreke Evans and Will Barton once the free-agent market opens. The team could have anywhere from $10 million to $30 million in cap space, depending on the status of forwards Thaddeus Young, who has a player option of $13.9 million, and Al Jefferson, whose $10 million salary is only partially guaranteed.
