Jerry Stackhouse Signed To One-Year Deal By Brooklyn Nets

The Brooklyn Nets have been incredibly aggressive in rebuilding their team. On Wednesday morning, they added some depth and veteran leadership. Jerry Stackhouse and the Nets have agreed to a one-year, $1.3 million contract, according to ESPN's Chad Ford.

Stackhouse, 37, isn't going to be much more than a minor role player, but without question a player who can help thanks to his bevy of experience. Last year, Stackhouse averaged 3.6 points per game for the Atlanta Hawks last season, only seeing time in 30 games.

The 6-foot-6 small forward has played for seven teams prior to Brooklyn. He broke in with the Philadelphia 76ers before moving onto the Detroit Pistons, where he had the best years of his career.

It's a low risk signing for the Nets, who need to fill out some roster spots on the cheap in order to sign some bigger names, and maybe trade for one in particular.
