Rumor: Heat want Jerry Stackhouse to replace injured Mike Miller?
The Miami Heat are looking into adding another veteran to their experience-laden roster. Jerry Stackhouse, who will turn 36 years-old next month, worked out for the Heat in Atlanta on Thursday, a source close to the team said.
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: The MIA and The Stack?
Reports indicate the Miami Heat could sign veteran Jerry Stackhouse as a fill-in for hard luck Mike Miller, who is out with a broken thumb until January.
Stackhouse, even in his mid-thirties, can play. Last year, he was an off-the-bench game changer for the upstart Milwaukee Bucks, averaging close to 9 points in 20 minutes of action.
The concern will be chemistry, not talent.
Miller is a shooter. When healthy, his stroke will punish opposing defenses for double and triple-teaming Chris Bosh, LeBron James, and Dwyane Wade.
Stackhouse is a scorer, getting points in a multitude of ways. However, his shot, while good, probably isn’t deadly enough to deter opponents from helping on The Three Kings.
