17-year NBA veteran Jerry Stackhouse agreed to a 1yr/$1.3M deal with the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday, according to league sources.

Stackhouse was with the Atlanta Hawks last season and played sparingly, appearing in only 30 games while averaging 3.6 points in 9 minutes of action per contest.

The 37-year old UNC Tarheel product was the NBA’s second-leading scorer in 2000-01, averaging a career-best 29.8 ppg, but unfortunately hasn’t played more than 40 games since the 2009-10 season when he was a member of the Milwaukee Bucks.

Stackhouse has career averages of 17.4 points, 3.4 assists and 3.3 rebounds per game.
