Jerry Stackhouse really dictates how the Mavericks offseason turned out. No, hes not a big addition, or anywhere close to the 20 points per game he was in his prime, but trading his expiring contract is very tempting for teams to acquire.

Stackhouse makes about 7 million a year and the 2009-10 season is his last year. if a team were to take him and then buy him out, they would save 5 million, and only pay him 2 million.

Stackhouse contract would be interesting to a team that doesn't look at the next season as good year, and would like to make a salary dump to bid for the huge 2010 free agent market. It doesn't even have to be a bad team, it could be a winning team that has no use for one of their star players, and would let him go for some salary cap space.

Stackhouse could help land us that 2 guard we haven't had since Michael Finley left.(Rip Hamilton and Michael Redd) He could also land us a center they never really had.(Chandler, Kaman, Camby, etc)

Whatever Dallas uses the Stackhouse chip for, we should all know that its going to fill Dallas a big needto help them contend with other NBA giants.
