How to Keep Lance Stephenson?

With the current roster and salary implications - how in the world do the Pacers keep Lance Stephenson? The way he is playing through the first 3 games suggests that he will get a much more lucrative offer than the MLE. With Roy and PG already locked up long term with max deals, and West and George Hill combining for another 20 million - where does this leave Stephenson? I believe the rest of the supporting cast is earning somewhere in the 15 million range with Scola, Copeland, and Mahinmi being the biggest earners of the bunch (4.5, 3, 4).

This is all assuming Lance refuses the MLE (why wouldn't he?). The only option, IMO, is a trade - probably involving Hill/Mahinmi/Copeland/Scola (a combination) .
