Brooklyn Nets Acquire Jerry Stackhouse
The Brooklyn Nets reached a verbal commitment with veteran guard Jerry Stackhouse on a one-year deal worth $1.3M, sources close to the process told ESPN.com’s Chad Ford.
The 17-year veteran played last season with theAtlanta Hawks, averaging 3.6 points in 30 games.
Stackhouse spent the last year as a veteran presence off the bench for the Hawks. The Nets will look to him to be a veteran stabilizing force in the locker room more than the impact player he used to be on the court.
Stackhouse, 37, has career averages of 17.4 points, 3.4 assists and 3.3 rebounds in his career. He was the league’s second-leading scorer in 2000-01 when he averaged a career-best 29.8 points but hasn’t played more than 40 games since the 2009-10 season when he averaged 8.5 points in 42 games with theMilwaukee Bucks.
