Jerry Stackhouse is going to get paid to be in the NBA for another season.

At age 38. For an 18th NBA season. After seeing limited minutes for the Hawks last season and appearing in 95 games total the past four years.

But he’s inked a deal with the Brooklyn Nets, he himself tweeted.

Officially a member of The Brooklyn Nets… NYC here we come!!!

This is a veteran’s minimum deal. With it the Nets get a guy who is like another coach on the bench. And… well, we’re trying to find positives here. He can sing the national anthem. The guys in the locker room will like him. He’s good with the media and that helps in New York.

So there’s all that. Don’t expect a lot on the court anymore.

    If they need to keep the Knicks on their aging toes as well, the why not!?!?

    Stack once put up 29.8 ppg, that was in 01 though.. Stack is now picking up 2 checks, one from Brookylyn and the other from Social Security, so my hats off to a former great

    He’ll avg somewhere around 1.8 a game. Oh, that’s minutes I am talking about.

    I didn’t even know Stackhouse was still in the league, is this even worth mentioning?

    Brooklyn’s response to Juawn Howard….This match-up could be huge come playoff time.

      If you ever wondered what would happen when a Russian oil baron and a rapper self-proclaimed “Hova” decided to own an NBA team together, well….

    Stackhouse is also being brought in to be an assistant coach/player under AJ. He played under AJ in Dallas and was a team mate of Joe Johnson in Atlanta. Want see major minutes with the Nets but will come in sporadically to give some of the starters some rest.

    I thought Jerry Stackhouse at at the old folks home somewhere in New Jersey? This should end badly.

    Seriously? I mean, ive always liked the guy but has he done anything worth mentioning in the past decade?!? Must be a hell of a mentor and coach in the locker room. Good for Jerry

    I remember traveling to Philadelphia many years back and buying my son a little 76ers jersey of their star player at the time – Ron Stackhouse…..

    My son just graduated from college….
