Weird to be at an @IndianaFever game and not see @Lance Stephenson courtside. He’s going to be missed around here…

Now, Beasley is a household name and deserves a mention among Indiana's greatest athletes ever.

Here's another example of soccer's growth in Indiana. Until recently, Beasley's accomplishments were largely unnoticed in his home state.

INCYMI: #Indyeleven's game on Saturday night is a sellout. Beasley played travel soccer in Indianapolis as a teenager.

Little Indiana tour for Beasley. He will be in Fort Wayne on Friday attending his camp.

Beasley will take part in ceremonial first kick. Game time is 7:30 against Tampa Bay Rowdies at Carroll Stadium.

I'll have a Stuckey story posted soon

Candace Buckner

"...and just be in a good situation with a great team."

Candace Buckner

More Stuckey: "...and once Lance decided to go to Charlotte, I thought it was just a good opportunity for me to come in…"

Candace Buckner

Stuckey: "We just kept in contact with them throughout the whole free agency process. They always showed interest in me…"

Candace Buckner

#Pacers clearly never shied away from Stuckey. On July 2, I tweeted about the team's interest in him and it apparently never waned.

Candace Buckner

Stuckey: "I was young & u live and learn...I’ve been through a lot of different experiences throughout life & I know how to handle (them)."

Candace Buckner

More Stuckey: "Yeah, I had my confrontations. Was I wrong in some parts? Yeah, I admit it. Yeah, I was. It was all out of frustration...

Candace Buckner

Stuckey on '11 unhappiness: "I just don’t like to lose. In Detroit, I’ve had people accept losing and I don’t accept that…"

Candace Buckner

Stuckey also took responsibility for 2011 feud with coach John Kuester that led to benching.

Candace Buckner

More Stuckey: "I don’t accept losing. I hate losing. It’s never fun when ur losing...All that’s behind me right now, it’s a fresh start."

Candace Buckner

Stuckey: "As far as being in Detroit and playing, it’s been tough…"

Candace Buckner

Stuckey: "My main goal, I want to get back into the playoffs. I want to compete and I want to win."

Candace Buckner

Stuckey, who hasn't played in the postseason in 5 seasons, described the #Pacers an easy choice for a free agent...

Candace Buckner

Stuckey: "This right here is a fresh start. I think it is something that I need and something that I want and I’m just excited about it."

Candace Buckner

Just got off the phone with newest #Pacer Rodney Stuckey, who will be in town Monday morning to sign contract & take his physical

Quote of the week. “The truth is rarely pure and never simple.” - Oscar Wilde

Candace Buckner

1 year, veteran minimum RT @rxfn5: @Candace Buckner what's the terms?

Candace Buckner

#Pacers haven't reached out to him RT @thepatrickirish: @Candace Buckner what about evan turner void and hope Larry has another move in him?

Candace Buckner

We talk about "antics" with Lance, but Stuckey was benched for insubordination, was defensive liability & had shooting problems.

Candace Buckner

Rodney Stuckey replacement to fill the Stephenson void is an interesting one.

#Indyeleven officials say sellout for this Saturday's game is earliest of the season. Guess someone cares about soccer after the World Cup.

Michael Pointer

As a reporter, I'll miss Lance. He usually said what was on his mind. Can't ask for much more than that. #pacers

My colleague @zkeefer and I discuss Lance Stephenson's move to Charlotte. Wonder what's next for the #Pacers?

Michael Pointer

#pacers Hibbert, Mathis reach out to Stephenson after Charlotte deal indy.st/1mhooEW via @indystar

Michael Pointer

The money per year is similar. Lance put the third season in Charlotte's control. Interesting. #pacers

Michael Pointer

When this whole process started, I thought Lance would be back. But in the end, is anyone really surprised at what he does? #Pacers

Michael Pointer

Erin Andrews' interview with Adam Wainwright was embarrassing. Respected her at ESPN. Looks like she's content being a personality at Fox.

Michael Pointer

I watched three innings of the All-Star Game. Much respect to Tom Verducci, but rest of the broadcasting crew? Mediocre at best.

Scott Agness

Lance has 2yrs left on his AND1 deal as their sole NBA endorser. Own shoe debuts in Feb. Gotta imagine MJ likes his guys playing in Jordans…

Candace Buckner

Post-Lance reset: as traditional lineup goes, the #Pacers have only one shooting guard under contract for the 2014-15 season: C.J. Miles

Candace Buckner

Nugget @ end of update RT @Andrew Perna: The #Pacers were not given a chance to match Charlotte’s offer on Lance, per @Candace Buckner

Candace Buckner

Here's updated story on former #Pacer Lance Stephenson signing 3-year, $27 million deal with Hornets indy.st/1mKNVeK via @indystar

Scott Agness

Absolutely. RT @John Schuhmann: More than ever, pressure is on Vogel to 1. Get more creative offensively and 2. Make better use of his bench.

Scott Agness

Bird regretted not spending more time w/ Lance last yr. Fellow Hall of Famer Michael Jordan should learn and stay on Lance from the outset.

Scott Agness

Veteran scout texted me his concern, writing that Lance is the Pacers’ "most important player." Energy guy, creates on his own, raises tempo

Scott Agness

Interesting to look back at quotes from Bird on Lance: "He’s a free agent. He could do whatever he wants to do.” "He can talk to any team"

Scott Agness

Pacers have a 14 played under contract next season, 11 guaranteed, and are ~$3M under the tax line. Big hole at SG to be addressed via trade

Candace Buckner

Concessions are made in FA MT @qandrews9428: why on earth would lance's agent ever agree 2 a team option if they r looking for flexibility?

Scott Agness

Called it. Go off the grid and a deal would happen. Never fails. Stephenson to Charlotte on a 3-yr deal, team option in year 3.

Candace Buckner

Full statement from Lance Stephenson's representative indy.st/1mhe7c0 via @indystar

Candace Buckner

Lance's agent said this could have been done "July 2" if he wanted more $$$, which is to assume there were other lucrative offers

Candace Buckner

Folks on timeline asking why Lance walked away from 5 yrs. Now, this is only from Lance's side, but they say it was less $ stretched longer

Candace Buckner

As previously reported (and first by Mr. @Rick Bonnell), Lance's deal w/ CHA: $9M 2014-15, $9M 2015-16, then team option $9.4 2016-17

Candace Buckner

so even tho they express "undying love" to Bird & #Pacers, sides were never on same page for these last two weeks. Never.

Candace Buckner

Still, must be noted that Lance's team never wanted a long-term deal ...

Candace Buckner

Posting a blog soon with a complete statement from Lance's side. Agent want to stress how much Lance appreciated Bird, team, teammates

Candace Buckner

"…which gave them less flexibility. I can respect that, it's business." -- Lance's agent

Candace Buckner

Agent: "They made an offer and then they went out and while I thought we were still at the table, they made some other deals…"

Candace Buckner

Also, Lance's agent said there had been several talks with the #Pacers, the last one happening a couple days ago but...

Candace Buckner

"...But you don’t want to take a little bit less and play your entire basketball prime, the next five years for a lower amount of money."

Candace Buckner

Lance's agent: "We’re betting on Lance and not against Lance. So if he had to take a little bit less, he was willing to do that...

Candace Buckner

Per his agent, #Pacers offered Lance two deals. Both for 5 years, but Lance's side wanted shorter term

Candace Buckner

Some updates re: Lance Stephenson's signing with the Charlotte Hornets...

Damjan Rudez

Summer is over ! Empezamos con trabajo

Candace Buckner

Cont'd: Hornets have 1 of the best big men in the game in Big Al, Lance can be a willing passer but also needs the ball. Sorry, Kemba

Candace Buckner

Quick takes: good 4 Lance 2 get paid, tho seems not so much more than he would've received here. Don't see how he fits in Clifford's system
