Eddie House is Hoping to Get Another NBA Contract


Add Eddie House to the list of out-of-work hoopsters looking to get back into the NBA. The 34-year old veteran guard tells the Sun-Sentinel that he’s ready should a team give him a look: “I’m still working out. I’m waiting to get a call,’ he said. ‘If I get one, I get one. I’ll be ready. But if I don’t, just trying to open up other doors. Hopefully something good happens.’ [...] House, of course, wasn’t around when the Miami Heat finally got it right, cut on the eve of last season in favor of the youth of Terrel Harris. Yet no sooner did Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh realize their championship dream one year deferred, then House was on the phone. ‘I called everybody,’ he said. ‘Everybody who I didn’t call, I left a text message, congratulating them and telling them how proud I was to see them doing that, because I knew how much hard work they put in to everything they’ve done. From top to bottom, I hit up the coaches, trainers, strength coach, even like the films guys. I hit everybody up to show my respect for what they did.’ All the while, the phone never rang for House, even after he moved past the knee issue that contributed to his Christmas Eve 2011 release. There was one NBA tryout last season that went well, he said, but never led to an offer. ‘It just seems like they’re not calling, for whatever reason,” he said. “I’m healthy right now, in good shape, feel good.’ The odds of a player being called back into service in the NBA are slim. But he sees Jerry Stackhouse thriving with the Brooklyn Nets and Rasheed Wallace finding his way with the New York Knicks and figures there still is hope.”

    he reminds me of mike bibby, when you need him the most he starts launching bricks from beyond the arc
