Nearly a week after the Indiana Pacers offered talented but controversial guard Lance Stephenson a five-year, $44 million contract, the two sides remain far apart on a new deal.

Stephenson obviously wants the sun, the moon and the stars from the Pacers after leading them in both rebounds and assists last season and really just taking his game to the next level overall. However, his on-court antics, especially throughout the playoffs, are what he is most-remembered for right now and that could be a sticking point for the Pacers with regard to going with more dollars. The two sides should continue to negotiate, but it might take the involvement of a third team to really kick the discussions into high gear.
