"He could come and take us to the top. But, if he doesn’t (go to Brooklyn), getting Brook Lopez back and the possibility of getting (Kris) Humphries back, that’s still a very, very good, formidable team that can compete with anybody.’’
Stackhouse also says he sees this year as a transition for him, from playing to coaching, adding that he spoke with Avery Johnson about it. "He was great. He said to look at this as an opportunity to still play and to broaden my base for coaching.’’ Stackhouse played for Johnson in Dallas.
