Contrary to reports in the Chinese media, former Mavericks swingman Jerry Stackhouse is not headed to the Far East. So says his agent, Jeff Schwartz.

"The rumor that Jerry Stackhouse is going to play in China is completely false," Schwartz told HoopsHype.com.  "He is still looking forward to joining and contributing to an NBA team this season."

Chinese agency Xinhua had reported earlier in the day that Stackhouse would try out for Shanxi Zhongyu, a team that features former NBA players Maurice Taylor and Donta Smith.
