Stack is no longer the explosive player that he was several years ago in Detroit, but he has evolved into one of the game's best Sixth Men in recent years. His M.O. has not changed throughout his career: Stackhouse remains a low-percentage, high-volume shooter that can score in bunches. He feasts at the foul line, attacking the rim whenever possible, and he has a nice close-to-mid-range jump shot. That said, Stackhouse's shot has always had a very flat trajectory, making 3-pointers and longer twos a shaky proposition. His 3-point range is especially questionable, as his career mark of 30% from downtown will attest to. Mercifully, he seems to have finally realized this, and his 3-point attempts per minute have slowly decreased as he has gotten older. Aside from his scoring, Stackhouse adds little else on offense.
Defense & Rebounding
Stackhouse has always been a non-factor on the boards. Defensively, he can hold his own against bigger players, but knee injuries have largely destroyed his ability to stay with quicker SG's -- and he was never that great a perimeter defender to begin with.
Stackhouse is a textbook Sixth Man—a high-volume shooter with no conscience. When he's scoring, he can be an asset, but he is still basically a one-dimensional player. Stackhouse is also a mortal lock to miss at least 25 games per season with various leg ailments, so anything beyond his current reserve role is a stretch. Dallas has him signed for another year, so they'll hope he can stave off his injuries and be one of the NBA's most productive bench players for one more season.
