Ford: Stackhouse, Nets agree to a one-year deal

Per Chad Ford, the Nets have verbally agreed to a one-year deal with Jerry Stackhouse for 1.3 million dollars.

A Stackhouse signing likely is more about filling the roster with capable veteran leadership than it is about Stack actually playing basketball. I’d be surprised if he saw important minutes on the court, as he only averaged around nine minutes a game last year and will be 38 by the time the Nets arrive at the Barclays Center. In that regard, I think it’s a good signing, although I don’t really know why the Nets chose him out of the pile of free agents willing to go for the vet minimum.

The good news is that this does not take the Nets out of the Gerald Green sweepstakes, as per the new CBA, he can still go for the vet minimum if he wants to give the Nets a discount.

Jerry Stackhouse averaged 3.6 points per game and shot 37% from the field in 30 games last season.

Have at it.
