Former New York Knicks shooting guard/point guard, Eddie House, has agreed to a $2.8 million, two-year contract with the Miami Heat, where he will join NBA stars LeBron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh.
Eddie House’s agent Mark Bartelstein says the second year of his contract with the Miami Heat is a player option. The Boston Celtics and Chicago Bulls were said to be among several teams that showed interest in House this offseason.
House’s career average is 7.6 points per game and he’s a 39% shooter from 3-point range. He will play an important role in the Miami Heat’s supporting cast for James, Wade and Bosh.
32-year-old Eddie House attended Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona. House was drafted 37th overall by the Miami Heat in the second round of the 2000 draft.
He has since played for eight other teams, including the New York Knicks most recently. He played with the Boston Celtics for almost 3 season before being traded to the New York Knicks last February along with Bill Walker and J.R. Giddens for Nate Robinson and Marcus Landry. House has also played for the L.A. Clippers, Charlotte Bobcats, Milwaukee Bucks, Sacramento Kings, Phoenix Suns and New Jersey Nets.
