Jerry Stackhouse NBA Career
He was selected in the first round of the 1995 NBA draft with the third pick by the Philadelphia 76ers. At one time he was hyped as the “Next Jordan” since both players played at North Carolina.
In his first season with the 76ers, he led his team with 19.2 points per game average and was named to the NBA’s All-Rookie team. In the 1996–97 season, the 76ers also drafted Allen Iverson. Combined, the two posted 44.2 points per game for the Sixers.
In 1997-1998, he played with Eric Montross for Theo Ratliff, Aaron Mckie, and future considerations. He averaged 23.6 points per game in his second season with the Pistons.
A year later, he had a career-high average of 29.8 points per game. In a late-season victory over the Chicago Bulls, he set the Pistons’ franchise record and the league’s season high for points in a game with 57. Stackhouse saw his final action as a Piston with Detroit’s elimination in the second round of the 2001–02 NBA playoffs to the Boston Celtics.
During the 2002 offseason, he was traded to the Washington Wizards for a six-year deal. He leads the Wizards with points 21.5 and assists 4.5 per game. He missed most of the 2003–04 season while recovering from arthroscopic surgery on his right knee, playing in only 26 games.
In the 2004 offseason,alongside Christian Laettner, and the Wizards’ first-round draft pick (Devin Harris)—was traded to the Dallas Mavericks in exchange for former Tar Heel and NBA All-Star Antawn Jamison.
He did not play for 41 games during his first two seasons with Dallas due to a groin and continued knee problems and played mostly the role of the sixth man.
During the 2004–05 playoffs, he began wearing pressure stockings during games to keep his legs warm, to aid his groin injury, and hold his thigh sleeves in place; the stockings also allowed for better blood flow to the legs.
The practice quickly became a trend among NBA players, with Kobe Bryant, Tracy McGrady, Vince Carter, Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, and others adopting pressure stockings the following season.
He was still a bench player for the Dallas Mavericks during the 2005–06 NBA season, however, he was a significant factor in the NBA Finals series with the Dallas Mavericks against the Miami Heat.
The Mavericks suffered, however, when he was suspended for Game 5 for a flagrant foul on Shaquille O’Neal, and the Heat eventually won the series 4–2. Stackhouse was the third player from the Mavericks suspended during the 2006 playoffs.
On July 8, 2009, he was traded to the Memphis Grizzlies. A day after the trade, he was dropped by the Grizzlies and signed for Milwaukee Bucks on January 17, 2010.
On October 23, 2010, Stackhouse and the Miami Heat agreed to a contract.
On December 9, 2011, he joined the Atlanta Hawks and was chosen to replace injured teammate Joe Johnson as Atlanta’s representative in the Haier Shooting Stars Competition during NBA All-Star weekend.
On July 11, 2012, he made a verbal agreement to sign a one-year, $1.3 million deal with the Nets. He has worn the number 42 in honor of Jackie Robinson, his favorite athlete, and became the first professional athlete to wear the number 42 in Brooklyn since Robinson.
On November 26, 2012, the Nets played the New York Knicks for the first time since the Nets had moved to Brooklyn. Stackhouse played 22 minutes and scored 14 points, including a tiebreaking 3-pointer in overtime, and the Nets went on to win. On March 18, 2013, he scored 10 points against the Detroit Pistons, one of his former teams.
After the Nets first-round playoff loss to the Chicago Bulls, Stackhouse announced his retirement.

Report: Jerry Stackhouse could be a candidate for Vanderbilt job
Memphis Grizzlies assistant coach and former NBA star Jerry Stackhouse is reportedly a name to watch in Vanderbilt’s coaching search.
According to FS1’s Evan Daniels, Stackhouse is worth keeping an eye on as Vanderbilt seek out a new head coach, as is Charlotte Hornets assistant and former Butler regular Ronald Nored.
Stackhouse has been highly heralded in NBA coaching circles and got an interview for the Toronto Raptors’ job last offseason. It’s only a matter of time before he becomes a head coach somewhere, though it’s unclear if it may be worth waiting on to try to land an NBA vacancy.
