The Milwaukee Bucks have signed guard/forward Jerry Stackhouse to a contract for the rest of the season. The Bucks will be the fifth team in Stackhouse's 14-year career. He previously played for Philadelphia, Detroit, Washington, and Dallas. The signing of Stackhouse will serve as a replacement move of sorts for the Bucks who lost Michael Redd for the remainder of the season last week.
Walter Cornett, of Glendale, Kentucky, is the owner and operator of Walter's Wildcat World. He founded WildcatWorld.com in 1998 making it one of the oldest Kentucky basketball fan sites in operation today.
