Bucks Sign Stackhouse

ESPN reports

The Milwaukee Bucks will sign veteran guard Jerry Stackhouse to a contract for the rest of the season, according to NBA front-office sources.

Sources told that Stackhouse is expected to formally sign with the Bucks on Monday or possibly Tuesday after the Martin Luther King holiday.

Meh. Not an inspiring signing.

I don’t like the idea of Stackhouse playing a considerable role at this stage in his career. He spent most of last season out injured. He’s been fairly poor over the last two years. Still a solid scoring threat (10-12ppg) given enough minutes (26-30mpg)  with mediocre scoring efficiency. Below par rebounder and defender.

I don’t really understand the point of signing Stackhouse and playing him ahead of Jodie Meeks. Similar overall value with slightly different strengths and weaknesses. Stack being more of a big strong two guard with a below the foul line game while Meeks is a jump shooter.

Anyway, Jerry Stackhouse doesn’t change anything for the Bucks. He’s not a difference maker … and the Bucks playoff chances still look like they’re in the toilet.
