Stephenson has been out of the NBA since his third stint with the Pacers in 2022.

The 6-foot-5 guard has recently been plying his trade in Puerto Rico but has joined the Iowa Wolves, per Sports Illustrated.

A second-round pick in 2010, Stephenson is a journeyman with 11 seasons experience in the NBA.

However, he has started just 14 games since the 2015/16 season.

A popular fan favorite, Stephenson’s unlikely return has been hailed by Timberwolves fans on social media.

One wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter: “The league is better when Lance is dancing! Let’s go Iowa wolves.”

Another said: “Take care of our boy. – signed Pacers fans.”

And a third wrote: “This man loves to hoop.”

Lance Stephenson finally spoke out on his infamous decision to blow in LeBron James’ ear during a 2014 playoff contest between the Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers, revealing that he was trying to get in James’ head.

“I was really trying to get [James] mad,” Stephenson acknowledged in a video for The Score. “Really trying to win the game, trying to get him unfocused. I would try anything.”

Whether it worked is questionable. The Pacers won that contest, 93-90, forcing a Game 6 in the Eastern Conference Finals that year. James only managed seven points and four assists after getting into foul trouble.

He had the last laugh, however, as the Heat eliminated the Pacers in Game 6. And Stephenson—who is now teammates with James in Los Angeles—is still trying to wrap his head around his strange version of mind games.

“I don’t regret it,” he said, “but sometimes I look at it like, ‘Why did I do that? What made me do that?'”
