Lance Stephenson doesn't regret his decision to sign with the Charlotte Hornets as a free agent, even though this season has been a huge struggle for the five-year NBA veteran. The Hornets gave Stephenson a three-year, $27 million deal this past offseason expecting him to bring a boost with his playoff experience. Things have gone so downhill that he didn't even play in Charlotte's biggest game so far this season - a 116-104 loss Monday night to the Boston Celtics - despite two starters being out with injuries. Hornets coach Steve Clifford said sitting Stephenson was the result of a combination of things, including the need to have a stronger defender on the floor with Michael Kidd-Gilchrist out with an ankle injury.
