NBA free agent center Brad Miller has just agreed to a three-year deal to join the Houston Rockets. Terms of the deal were reportedly worth $15 million. What could have influenced Miller into joining the Rockets was the fact that he has played under Rockets coach Rick Adelman while they were together with the Sacramento Kings.
Miller is expected to play back up to All-Star center Yao Ming. Yao was sidelined last season due to injury. The Rockets were trying to lure Chris Bosh as soon as free agency opened this month but Bosh decided to join forces with Dwayne Wade and LeBron James in Miami.
Brad Miller is a 12-year veteran who can ably fill the height disadvantage that the Rockets struggled with last season. He suited up for the Bulls last season playing all 82 games with averages of 8.8 points, 4.9 rebounds in 24 minutes of action per game.
Miller’s agent stated that he and Miller saw championship potential in the Houston Rockets, another reason why they opted to join Yao, Adelman and company.
