NEW ORLEANS, LA (WMC) -

Lance Stephenson will not be returning to Memphis.

The Vertical reports the shooting guard will sign with the New Orleans Pelicans

In June, the Grizzlies declined Stephenson’s $9.4 million team option, making him a free agent.

Stephenson was traded to Memphis last season and played well in 26 games (three starts) for the Grizz. He averaged 14.2 points and 4.4 rebounds per game, shooting more than he has in any season in his career. He filled the offensive void left by injuries to Mike Conley and Marc Gasol.

New Orleans will be the 5th team Stephenson has played with in seven seasons.
