If you review the stats and overall play of Lance Stephenson, Chandler Parsons and Gordon Hayward, you will find that all three have similar offensive stats. Of the three, Stephenson is certainly the best defender and probably the best ball handler.
Hayward - 4/$60M
Parsons - 3/$45M
Stephenson -- 3/$27M.
So Stephenson (almost 5 Defensive Win Shares last year, one of the top 6 players in the league in that category) is worth $6M less per year than these two more well behaved white guys who combined last year had 4 Defensive Win Shares......
The high price of being an asshole.
