INDIANAPOLIS -- When the Indiana Pacers decided to not pick up the contract for guard Lance Stephenson, there was always a small chance he could return on a different deal.

That won't be the case, as Stephenson signed a one-year, $4.5 million deal with the Los Angeles Lakers Sunday, definitively ending his run with the Pacers.

Stephenson spent just more than one season with the Pacers on his second run with the team, but it was a memorable one. Stephenson provided many years worth of highlights and goofy moments for fans to enjoy. 

Stephenson released a statement on Twitter late Sunday night, saying,

"The entire organization stood by me through all of the ups and downs of my career and have played a crucial role in molding me into the man and players that I am today. ... Indiana will always be my home, and the Pacers organization will always be my family."
