After a fruitful four-year career in Happy Valley, which saw him start each of his 135 games and would’ve seen him surpass Talor Battle as the program’s all-time leading scorer had COVID-19 not cancelled the Big Ten and NCAA Tournaments last March, Lamar Stevens will now be taking his talents to the NBA, having agreed to a contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers as an undrafted free agent.
No doubt this is well-deserved for Lamar, as he has worked tirelessly to improve his perimeter shooting among other facets of his game to make himself attractive enough for an NBA team to take a chance on him. Judging from a pair of tweets he put out yesterday, his former coach Pat Chambers as well as a local elementary school were quite proud of him (along with the rest of Nittany Nation).
