Miller, Rockets Agree To Three-Year Deal Worth $15 Million

Marc Stein of ESPN.com is reporting that the Houston Rockets have agreed with free agent center Brad Miller, formerly of the Chicago Bulls.

Miller said the opportunity was “too good of a deal to pass up,” according to the Chicago Tribune.

“It’s my favorite coach [Adelman] I’ve ever played for. I know [Martin] real well from our Sacramento days. Luis [Scola] had a heck of a year. And I finally get to play with Yao [Ming] instead of guarding his big butt. The team is pretty solid,” he said, according to the report

SB Nation Houston’s David Nuño has confirmed the signing as well.

Miller, 34, averaged 8 points and 5 rebounds per game for the Bulls last season. During his previous stint with Rockets coach Rick Adelman in Sacramento, Miller made two All-Star games and was known as one of the most versatile big men in the league.

Update (4:41 p.m. Sat.): The first two years of the deal are guaranteed at $5 million. The final year is partially guaranteed at $1 million.
