Italy’s Virtus Bologna Refuses to Make Offer to Jerry Stackhouse

With the lockout in full effect, offers from international teams just keep pouring in. Unfortunately, that’s not the case for Jerry Stackhouse, who last played in the League with the Miami Heat early in ’10-11. Via Sportando: “Jerry Stackhouse was offered to Virtus Bologna but the Italian team turned down the proposal. The experienced player, now free agent, wanted an NBA out in the contract but Claudio Sabatini, owner of the team, said several times the club is not interested in signing players with escape which allows them to return to US. And Virtus Bologna was also concerned about the physical conditions of Stackhouse who has played just seven game in the last season before the cut.”

    Usually, the Bologna doesn’t have a choice. Stack just eats it.


    Once upon a time Stack would’ve been able 2 get what he asked for. But not no more. I luv Stack, but he’s gotta b realistic bout things.

    Stack could still average 30 in some Euro leagues. Even if he is about 49 yrs old. P90X Stack, keep it up.

    Read between the lines. Because elite guys are going to Europe, that means guys who make a lot less already over there probably won’t get signed at all or have their contracts renewed. Or will have significantly less playing time.

    Jerry Stackhouse is not half bad…his upper deck and some rookie cards are worth quite some cash, however, he was cut from the Heat to make room to add someone else, i think it was Juwan Howard, i think…not real sure, so plz, dont quote me on it…he was defenetly cut to add someone else…i recently saw him playing alongside John Wall in the NC Pro AM basketball tourney…he was into it, and he still in shape. Go Stack, play till you 88, the love for the game is neverending….lol
