He started just 25 games, playing in 61. He matched his career numbers, scoring 8 points and grabbing 4.5 rebounds while dishing 3.5 assists, but was coming off a 13.8 point 7 rebound per game season with the Indiana Pacers, shooting 50%. Stephenson should fit in well with the Clippers in the uptempo offense. He is just 24 years old.
Stephenson should slide into the Clippers starting lineup for Barnes, who is on an expiring contract. He will join Chris Paul, J.J. Redick, Blake Griffin and maybe DeAndre Jordan, if the Clippers can bring him back, with the ability to match any contract.
Hawes is also on a pretty big deal, signing with the Clippers for $23 mil over 4 seasons. Hawes played 17.8 minutes per game in 73 appearances, making 15 starts with Los Angeles, but shot under 40%. It is a strange move to take on Hawes contract, with Al Jefferson, Cody Zeller, Bismack Biyombo, Marvin Williams under contract. Not to mention, Noah Vonleh will return next season.
