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.
