Lance Stephenson Enters NBA Draft After One Year!

Keith BennettCorrespondent IApril 8, 2010

 Lance Stephenson one year removed from winning a fourth straight PSAL title at Lincoln High School  in New York. The 6-5 guard just finished his freshman season at Cincinnati and enter my name and had said earlier he would return for his sophomore year, but he announced yesterday he was leaving the school. Stephenson, the Big East Rookie of the Year, averaged 12.3 points, 5.4 rebounds and 2.5 assists for the Bearcats. Stephenson has a 2-year-old daughter. Stephenson claim his reasons to turn pro is financially support my family. And a burning passion to play in the NBA. I think he's going to be a major contributor to an NBA team. He not a lottory pick by no means. Maybe a mid-first-round or late-first-round. The New Jersey have two first round picks. Stephenson would look good in a Nets uniform. He be coming home in two years.
