NBA veteran guard Lance Stephenson is hoping to make a comeback to the league after a strong showing in China, tweets Yahoo Sports’ Chris Haynes.

Stephenson, 29, signed a one-year deal with the Chinese Basketball Association’s Liaoning Flying Leopards last August. The Brooklyn native was Liaoning’s leading scorer, averaging 26.7 points, 7.4 rebounds and 3.8 assists in nearly 35 minutes per game. It was the first time since he was selected 40th overall by the Indiana Pacers in 2010 that Stephenson did not open the year on an NBA roster.
