Report: Hornets, Nets discussing Lance Stephenson, Joe Johnson trade


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/25/2015) The Hornets and Nets have reportedly re-opened trade talks with the focus on guards Joe Johnson and Lance Stephenson, according to Yahoo Sports NBA Insider Adrian Wojnarowski.

Brooklyn and Charlotte are looking at a larger deal which would include Stephenson, Gerald  Henderson and Marvin Williams.

Johnson has recently dealt with tendinitis in his knee and ankle and is due to make $24.9 million next season.


If you own Lance Stephenson, you're stuck


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1/16/2015) It's easy to understand why Fantasy owners are so frustrated with Lance Stephenson. He spent the first two months of the season bricking every shot he took, and then missed 14 games recovering from a groin injury amid a swirl of trade rumors, the latest of which would have had the Hornets dumping him for little in return. At this point, what do you have to gain from having him on your roster?

Quite a bit, actually, even if he hasn't given any evidence of that so far this season. Stephenson was a borderline top-75 Fantasy option in Rotisserie leagues a year ago, and made it into the top-20 among guards in raw Fantasy scoring as well. Say what you will about what Stephenson has done in Charlotte -- and there isn't much positive to say -- but his upside is clear if you can step back a bit. If you have held on to him for this long, what sense is there in dumping him now, when he might just be able to turn things around.

Stephenson has struggled with his shot all season long, making just 8 of 53 3-point attempts, and is shooting just 44.0 percent on 2-pointers as well. He was a 49.1 percent shooter from the field and made 86 3-pointers a year ago, so you probably want to bet on him regressing a bit. The fact of the matter is, nobody is going to give you anything worthwhile for Stephenson, and you probably won't find anyone with the kind of upside he showed in 2013 on waivers, so you might be stuck.


Reports: Thunder-Nets still talking trade after three-team deal fails


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/16/2015) While there are multiple reports a three-team trade between the Thunder, Nets and Hornets is off the table, it now appears the Thunder and Nets are talking about a two-team deal, according to ESPN's Chris Broussard and Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski.
