Paul George offers lukewarm endorsement for re-signing Lance Stephenson

Paul George hesitated briefly and measured his words when asked Friday whether he would like the Pacers to re-sign Lance Stephenson, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer.
“I mean, I don’t know,” George said, following Indiana’s season-ending loss to Miami in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals. “That’s for [Pacers president] Larry [Bird], [GM] Kevin [Pritchard], for them to decide.”
If that initial reaction was somewhat less than enthusiastic, George did vouch for his fellow 2010 draft pick.
