02:37 PM ET 03.30 | It appears that Jerry Stackhouse's long NBA career will be coming to an end after 18 seasons. The 38-year-old veteran is set to retire after this season, although he won't be leaving the NBA anytime soon. After his retirement, Stackhouse plans on having a major role in the NBA Players Association. "It's not completely sold that I don't get the bug (to play) again,'' Stackhouse told FOX Sports Florida before Friday's game at Denver. "But, really, I think this is an opportune time to kind of step to the forefront to do something with the union and try to make sure we select the right executive director.'' Stackhouse was recently elected to a four-year term as first vice president for a players union that's in a bit of disarray with the ouster of executive director Billy Hunter during All-Star weekend. While members of the executive committee usually have to be active players, it's expected that Stackhouse will be allowed to serve his term after his retirement. Stackhouse has averaged 17.0 points in his career and is averaging 4.7 points with the Nets this season.

I know. I was shocked to see him on the Nets bench the other night in Portland.
