Lance Stephenson's career has taken a nosedive since his days with the Indiana Pacers.
In 2014, having led the Indiana Pacers to two consecutive Eastern Conference finals battles with LeBron James and the Miami Heat, the forward rejected a five-year, $44 million contract - what a mistake that has proven to be.
Michael Jordan targetted Stephenson for the Charlotte Hornets and signed him to a three-year, $27 million deal as they looked to make a statement in the east.
But what has followed since has been a disaster. He played just 61 games for the Hornets - starting only 25 - as he managed just 8.2 points, 3.9 assists and 4.5 rebounds.
After one disappointing season in North Carolina he was traded to the L.A. Clippers for Spencer Hawes and Matt Barnes, but his spell there was even less fruitful as he played just 43 times.
The Brooklyn native was then moved on, alongside a future first-round pick, to the Memphis Grizzlies in 2016 for a rental of Jeff Green. He averaged a career-high 14.2 points per outing in Tennessee but was not offered an extension.
It seems teams have been reluctant to take a chance on the 26-year-old and despite the New Orleans Pelicans offering him a lifeline, Adrian Wojnarowski has reported only $100,000 of the $1.2 million deal is guaranteed.
He has some serious work to do.
