Lance Stephenson wants to make NBA comeback with the Brooklyn Nets

The Brooklyn Nets can turn their attention towards training camp in the fall now that most of their summer tasks have been taken care of from the draft to the summer league. In addition to training camp and next season, it looks like the Nets have one more factor to possibly look forward to.

According to Tashara Jones of the New York Post, former NBA player Lance Stephenson wants to come back to the NBA and he wants to do that with a New York-based team. Stephenson told Jones that he believes that it’s time for him to play for either the New York Knicks or the Nets given the fact that he was born and raised in Brooklyn.

Despite making a name for himself as a New York City basketball player, Stephenson has spent his post-high school basketball in places other than New York. He said that either the Knicks or the Nets will do since he feels like he represents the area no matter where he plays.
