Jerry Stackhouse and Brooklyn Nets Reportedly Agree to 1-Year Deal

The Brooklyn Nets are perhaps the hardest-working team of this NBA offseason. ESPN's Chad Ford is reporting via Twitter that the team has reached an agreement with NBA veteran Jerry Stackhouse:

This is obviously not intended to be an addition to the Nets' potentially contending core, but perhaps Stackhouse's leadership could be an asset.

The team has already re-signed Deron Williams. It will retain free agent Gerald Wallace, agreed to a trade to acquire swingman Joe Johnson and still has desires to make a move for Dwight Howard.

The Nets are smart not to get too preoccupied with reeling in the big fish, thus forgetting about the role players. These spots can play a big part in any potential playoff run.

Ask the Miami Heat how important Mike Miller was in Game 5 of the NBA Finals.

Stackhouse is 37 years old, and he played in 30 games for the Atlanta Hawks last season. He has averaged 17.4 points per game in his 17-year NBA career, but he hasn't been anywhere close to that in the last four seasons.

Still, this is a low-risk, roster-filling move that could have some high intangible value.
