Lamar Stevens is being traded to the San Antonio Spurs, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
The Penn State great had his 2023-2024 contract guaranteed by the Cleveland Cavaliers earlier this week, now finds himself heading west.
The main piece of the trade was the sign and trade of Heat guard Max Strus. The Spurs also acquired a second round pick and Cedi Osman.
Lamar Stevens just finished his third year in the NBA. Despite going undrafted, Stevens has made a nice career with his extreme athleticism and ability as a defensive stopper, despite not quite developing a NBA three point shot to become an everyday ‘3 and D’ player.
His career averages are 5.3 points and 2.8 rebounds in just over 16 minutes per game and averaged 55 games per year thus far.
Stevens takes his talents to perhaps the greatest coach in his generation, Greg Popovich and the Spurs, who just drafted all generational talent Victor Wembanyama number one overall.
