He debuted for the Pacers in February 2011 in a match against the Phoenix Suns, however, he was demoted from the rooster due to “immaturity issues”, so during the 2011-12 season, Lance made only a few appearances for the Pacers, including his first career starter against the Chicago Bulls in which he scored 22 points. In the next season, he was a regular starter, and in the 6th game of the Eastern Conference semifinals, he led the Pacers to a win over New York Knicks with a career high double-double 25 points and 10 rebounds. However, they lost in the final to the Miami Heat. All these engagements provided the basis for Lance Stephenson’s net worth.

However, after just the half of the season, Lance Stephenson was traded again, this time to the Memphis Grizzlies, in February 2016. In September 2016, Lance Stephenson relocated to New Orleans and signed with the Pelicans. It is certain that all these ventures have helped Lance to gain experience as well as to add to his overall net worth.
