Veteran NBA guard Lance Stephenson was selected 13th overall by the Grand Rapids Gold in the first round of the 2021 NBA G League draft on Saturday.

The Gold are the G League affiliate of the Denver Nuggets, and they are set to give Stephenson an opportunity to earn his way back into the NBA.

Stephenson, 31, is a nine-year NBA vet who has played for the Indiana Pacers, Charlotte Hornets, Los Angeles Clippers, Memphis Grizzlies, New Orleans Pelicans, Minnesota Timberwolves and Los Angeles Lakers.

Several notable players were selected in the first round of Saturday's draft, including fellow NBA veteran guard Brandon Knight, Dwyane Wade's son Zaire Wade, and LiAngelo Ball, who is the brother of NBA guards Lonzo and LaMelo Ball.
