Jerry Stackhouse Inks Deal With Miami Heat
Looking for someone to fill the void left by Mike Miller's injury, the Miami Heat have signed Jerry Stackhouse to a contract.
Stackhouse was in Miami to workout Friday, and the team liked what it saw from the 15-year veteran.
He has averaged 18 ppg during his career, but hasn't averaged more than 13 ppg a season during his last five years in the league.
Stackhouse spent last season with the Milwaukee Bucks, where he averaged 8.5 ppg in 45 games in a reserve role.
He had lobbied for a chance to play in Miami during the offseason, feeling that playing for the Heat would give him the best chance to win an elusive NBA title.
He was drafted by Philadelphia in 1995, then spent time playing with Detroit, Washington, and Dallas before joining Milwaukee last season.
Stackhouse came close to winning an NBA Championship in 2006 while with Dallas, which lost to Miami in the Finals.
