Stack's Back On Track: The NBA Return of Jerry Stackhouse

Andrew PalumboSenior Analyst IJanuary 20, 2010

It's been a long, strange journey, but Jerry Stackhouse appears set to return to NBA action for the first time in over a year.  

Those who haven't closely followed the moves that multiple teams have made in regard to the aging and injured player might be surprised to learn that he will be donning a Milwaukee Bucks jersey.  Following a season where Stackhouse only played ten games for the Dallas Mavericks, he was traded to Memphis in the offseason.  His contract was bought out and he signed with the Bucks on January 18.

Although Stackhouse has been a solid contributor for Dallas the past handful of years, it is unknown what type of impact the veteran may be able to have on the struggling Bucks squad.  

In fact, Stackhouse himself was quoted as saying, "I don't know where I am, honestly. Not playing in over a year, I think your guess is about as good as mine.  The thing about it is, I'm just happy to be back."

It certainly doesn't sound like the words of a guy focused on carrying the sub .500 Bucks to a playoff run.  But, without the injured Michael Redd, it's something for fans to hope for.

Only time will tell if the Stackhouse experiment will work for Milwaukee.
