Jerry Stackhouse agreed to join the Brooklyn Nets in a one-year deal worth $1.3 million, according to a report from ESPN's Chad Ford. Stackhouse spent last season with the Hawks and while he's past the point of providing quality minutes for an NBA squad, his veteran leadership and experience is something that could benefit most teams, especially ones that don't have a lot of it.
