Rockets, Brad Miller Agree to 3 Years, $15M

Like it or not, Miller was the best of the remaining free agent centers, and Houston certainly could use the 34-year-old vet off the bench. From Marc Stein: “Veteran center Brad Miller has agreed to a three-year contract worth $15 million with the Houston Rockets. Miller attracted interested from numerous other teams but was strongly lobbied to move to Houston by Rockets coach Rick Adelman, who coached him in Sacramento, and guard Kevin Martin, who was Miller’s teammate on the Kings. Miller said the opportunity was “too good of a deal to pass up,” according to the Chicago Tribune.”

    Well, Brad Miller certainly deserves 5 million a year a lot more than Darko.

  • SpaceJam

    Solid pick-up for the Rockets, not worth 5 mil a year though. Wish he would’ve gone back to the Bulls. Go Chicago.

    Was really hoping he’d stay in the Chi. Now we can only hope that that Omer Asik kid is halfway decent.

    does he lee? at this stage? brad can shoot and pass, but thats it, no defense, no running, no shot blocking. its all relative

    Good move. 5 mil per isn’t bad for a Yao backup and solid role player. At least the Rockets didn’t lose their damn minds like the Mavs and go give Brendan freaking Haywood 55 mil.

  • TrailBlazing&SportingLisbon

    agree with Tarzan here..he can NOT run or jump no more.

    Houston could have a dominating frontcourt now.

    The Rockets are going to be HELLA deep this season:

    C.Yao/Miller
    PF.Scola/Hill/Patterson/Hayes
    SF.Ariza/Battier/Budinger
    SG.Kevin Martin/Jermaine Taylor
    PG.Aaron Brooks/Kyle Lowry

    If Yao and K-Mart stay healthy no one will want to play this team in the post-season.

  • Scottie Pimpin

    We Want Ben Gordon, BACK !

  • anony mous

    That’s waayyy to much white for one team. Who do they think they are, the Pacers?

    Is Yao Ming healthy? What will happen to Chris Andersen – he of the ‘I spell my surname just that little bit differently’ class – now that they have a few decent bigs (on paper)?

  • MARTIN BROOKS

    THE ROCKETS FINALLY GOT IT RIGHT BRAD MILLER IS A HUGE ADDITION. BRAD HAS ALREADY PLAYED IN ADDLEMANS SYSTEM SO THAT A PLUS AND WE ALSO FOUND A LEGITIMATE CENTER THAT IS NOT ALIABILITY ON THE OFFENSIVE END. OUR SEASON WOULD BE BASED STRONGLY ON THE HEALTH OF YAO WE FINALLY HAVE SOME ONE THT CAN PLAY 15-20 MINUTES OFF THE BENCH AND IT MAKES OUR FRONT COURT THAT MUCH STRONGER WITH THE DEPARTURES OF AMARE AN BOOZER.
