The Brooklyn Nets coaching staff is coming together quite nicely with Paul Westphal, John Welch, Tony Brown and Jay Humphries but there is one person who would like to join that staff and his name is Jerry Stackhouse.

Stackhouse said he has emailed new Nets coach Lionel Hollins — who was hired after Jason Kidd’s abrupt departure and subsequent hiring in Milwaukee — but Stackhouse also acknowledged that he is likely part of “a long list” of people and coaches looking for a spot on Hollins’ staff. There has been speculation that Stackhouse could land in Wisconsin with Kidd, too.

(Hollins) knows that my passion is to get into (coaching). But when you’ve fielded so many calls, and everybody wants to get in, I know it’s tough on him. I didn’t really press the issue. Just try to figure out the best fit for me.” Stackhouse said he hopes to have a coaching gig before the start of this season.

“His guys were a little more mature,” Stackhouse said. “It was still a great experience. (Hollins) knows that my passion is to get into (coaching). But when you’ve fielded so many calls, and everybody wants to get in, I know it’s tough on him. I didn’t really press the issue. Just try to figure out the best fit for me.” Stackhouse said he hopes to have a coaching gig before the start of this season.

“I think a positive for me is that I can still play,” Stackhouse said. “I feel like I can get on the court, teach guys more from a hands-on experience as opposed to just telling them what to do. I’m looking to take advantage of that while I still can.”


I think this would be a great move for the Nets as Stackhouse is an extremely intelligent person with a healthy basketball IQ and one who has a wealth of basketball knowledge coming from the University of North Carolina and playing in the NBA for 18 solid years.

Bringing back Stack would delight Nets fans all around without a doubt!
