Another second-round pick whose contract didn't become guaranteed until the offseason, Stephenson really emerged during the 2012-13 playoffs as his defense helped propel his young Pacers squad all the way to Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals. He and Paul George have made Danny Granger an afterthought in Indiana, and as he enters the final year of his current deal looks primed to cash in with another strong effort. As long as he can stay out of trouble, Stephenson has a bright future in the NBA.
