Dallas, TX - The Dallas Mavericks officially re-signed forward Jerry Stackhouse on Friday.
Terms of the deal were undisclosed, but several sources reported it is a three-year deal.
'We are happy to have Jerry back,' said Mavs head coach Avery Johnson. 'He had other opportunities, but to have a veteran such as Stack is positive for us. He is a tough-minded physical player and one of the best reserves in the league. He knows the system and has come up big for us in the past so we know we can count on him in the future.'
Stackhouse, acquired by Dallas in a June 2004 trade with Washington, averaged 12 points and 2.8 assists in 67 games coming off the bench last season for the Mavericks.
The 12-year NBA veteran owns a career-average of 19.2 points with Philadelphia, Detroit, Washington and Dallas.
