KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Stephenson suffered a groin injury and will require surgery that will reportedly keep him out for 6 to 10 weeks.

The New Orleans Pelicans have reached an agreement with free agent Archie Goodwin and will part ways with Lance Stephenson, according to a report from Yahoo Sports.

Lance Stephenson's time with the New Orleans Pelicans lasted just six games.

This move comes as a surprise, notwithstanding the fact that Stephenson is hurt.

New Orleans signed Stephenson this past offseason to a one-year, non-guaranteed contract worth about $1.2 million.

With a shortage of healthy bodies, the winless Pelicans (0-6) needed room to fit Goodwin on the roster. It has been sparks of scoring like that which have made him a valuable asset to the Pacers and other teams throughout his young career.

The Pelicans plan to officially waive Stephenson (groin) on Monday, Shams Charania of Yahoo!

In roughly 27 minutes a night, Lance was putting in 9.8 points on 47 percent shooting from the field while handing out almost five assists per game.

The 6-foot-5 Goodwin, a fourth-year pro out of Kentucky, has averaged 6.2 points in 150 career National Basketball Association games — all with Phoenix — since 2013. He's been doing everything for New Orleans while getting little help in return, something Goodwin can help with.
