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.

Jerry Stackhouse is ‘ìntrigued about the Miami situation‘

Everybody is kind of intrigued about the Miami situation and seeing if they’re trying to add another veteran to their team. If that happened, I’d be thrilled to be there. I think that would feel like Hall of Fame accreditation to have a guy like Pat Riley come and ask you to be a part of their team.

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: The Stack would work in The MIA.

Once again, free agent swingman Jerry Stackhouse is talking publicly about joining the Miami Heat. Hopefully, ‘oil slick’ executive Pat Riley hears the veteran’s not-so-subtle hints and signs him.

After all, Stackhouse provided the Milwaukee Bucks with a boost in the second half of 2010. And the former All-Star would surely be a super-sub behind LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. 

In limited minutes, Stackhouse would score, defend, and provide a mature presence for a team that will be both public enemies and rock stars.

All this for a veteran`s minimum contract. So Riley and the Heat need to make this happen. If not now, perhaps at mid season.

Jerry Stackhouse would come cheap for Miami Heat

Free-agent forward Jerry Stackhouse is interested in playing for the Heat.  Stackhouse played well for the Bucks last season.

"When you look at a situation with Miami now and having to try and fill their roster with minimum-type contracts," he said recently on NBA TV, "I would take one of those minimum contracts if they're available."

HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: Unlike Penny Hardaway who recently lobbied the Miami Heat for a job, Jerry Stackhouse could contribute. 
 
Last year the veteran swing joined the Milwaukee Bucks at mid-season. Stackhouse - along with John Salmons who was acquired at the trade deadline - changed the Bucks' season by providing much-needed scoring.
 
The former All-Star is still capable, and could thrive as a bench piece supporting Three Kings Chris Bosh, LeBron James, and Dwyane Wade.
 
Best of all, he'd come cheap, and play for the minimum. So what does Heat GM Pat Riley have to lose?
