Herb Simon 'OK' With Pacers Pursuing Deal For Lance Stephenson

Herb Simon said he would personally be fine with the Indiana Pacers pursuing a trade to bring back Lance Stephenson, but left any decisions up to the team's front office.

"I'd be OK with it but it's not up to me. Larry (Bird) has to decide if he fits," Simon said.

Several deciding factors would determine the Pacers' interest in Stephenson, said Simon, and a huge consideration would be chemistry.

"First of all, we don't know if they're really trading him, at least I don't know," Simon said about the Hornets. "I know they made some calls and we would have to (figure out) how he fits back into the team. Those are all basketball decisions and Larry and Kevin (Pritchard) are the best to answer that.

Lance Stephenson Expects To Get Booed From Pacers Crowd In Return

Lance Stephenson has already visualized the scene when his name is introduced in front of the Indiana Pacers' home crowd on Wednesday.

Stephenson expects to receive boos from the crowd after leaving the Pacers as an unrestricted free agent to sign a three-year contract with the Charlotte Hornets.

"Honestly," Stephenson said. "I think I'm going to get booed."

Stephenson's father, Lance Stephenson Sr., maintains that leaving the Pacers was not the plan heading into free agency in the offseason.

"It was definitely a tough decision to leave but it almost was like we had no choice, to me. The next day, they signed CJ Miles so it was over from that point on," Stephenson's father said. "It was tough. It wasn't like, 'Eff, the Pacers!' It was tough to leave. I didn't think it would happen. Before free agency, if you asked me where Lance was going to be, I would've said, 'He's going to be a Pacer for life.' That was one of our goals. I'm a firm believer in sticking with the team you got drafted by."
