Brooklyn Nets Signed Jerry Stackhouse

Jerry Stackhouse, the 17-year NBA vet and journeyman, is taking his talents to Brooklyn. From the NY Times: “The Nets announced Monday that they had signed Jerry Stackhouse, a 17-year N.B.A. veteran, and Mirza Teletovic, a free-agent forward who played in Spain last season. Stackhouse, a 6-foot-6 guard-forward, averaged 3.6 points in 30 games with the Atlanta Hawks last season, while Teletovic, who is 6 feet 9, scored 16.3 points and pulled down 6.9 rebounds per game in Spain.”

    How many teams has Stack played for?

    Don’t sleep on Teletovic guys. He’s a hell of a player!

    How is Stackhouse getting signage in the NBA but not AI..man it’s so blatant that he was blackballed.

    Cause Stackhouse could sit on a bench for 82 games and not complain endlessly about it

    A good point LLC, I guess maybe AI does this to himself, but blackballed sounds mad cool. So blackballed it is!

    I would rather have a player that wants to play every minute of the game, a player that wants to earn his paycheck and a player who is capable of earning his money (in putting up at least 15 pts per contest) instead of one who happily signs a 5 or 6 figure contract just to be a cheerleader from the bench. All Allen Iverson ever wanted was to play basketball (earn his money) and as an nba general manager I would sign him in a millisecond just because of that reason and because I`ve seen him up close and personal recently and he still got game. some nba teams need to offer Allen Iverson a contract this summer.

    The thing is that AI would give you more than three ppg.

    anyways, t6he reason Stack signed with the Nets is because of his relationship with Avery Johnson while Stack played for him in Dallas. Stackhouse wants to get into coaching, so the two talked about this and you could see this upcoming season as sort of an internship, while he’s still a player.

    Ha! I love it; saw a headline on my homepage about Nets signing a former all-star only to ignore it on my way to SLAM and wham a link to Stack signing with the Nets. I hope those extra clicks are worth losing your editorial soul msn…

  • Allenp

    Classic tweet by Stack.

    @Redd: because AI proved to be unreliable / an offcourt drama and unwilling to accept a minor role on an nba team ^^

  • ALD

    i love AI… he is a cultural icon but he does not fit with the nets and avery johnson. Avery likes pass first pg’s(ex got devin harris trade twice) plus they just signed cj and marshon would start the two.

  • phil da windmill

    Stackhouse was in de la souls stakes is high video getting dunking on by plug 1 r.i.p j.dilla

  • wixursss

    i’ll add to the 20 comments……Stackhouse signs with a top team but Iverson can’t even get signed by Charlotte or Toronto when he’s willingly asking for a bench role?????????????

  • wixursss

    ……..Iverson can’t even get invited to a training camp either???
