Houston Rockets sign Brad Miller

Jul 17, 2010, 2:10 PM EDT

Houston needed some depth down low, even after re-signing Luis Scola and with Yao Ming returning. They needed a center with size to come off the bench and potentially hit from the perimeter to stretch the floor. Today they addressed that need.

Marc Stein of ESPN is reporting
the Rockets have signed center Brad Miller to a 3-year, $15 million deal. Houston now sports a frontcourt that includes Yao Ming, Luis Scola, Brad Miller, Chuck Hayes, Jordan Hill, and Patrick Patterson. That’s kind of ridiculous. Daryl Morey runs the game, web-cult or no.

It’s overpaying for Miller, there’s no question about that. He’s got great size, but $5 mil a year is a lot for a center whose rebounding numbers have plummeted over the past two seasons. But the third year of the contract is only partially guaranteed, and all he’s been brought in to do is be a component in a versatile system, a system Morey has worked hard to build around multiple components capable of playing a range of roles.

    The present rocket coach has done wonders with that team, I am sure that he will fit in with their game plan. The success of the team depends on Yoa having a better than average return.

    Terrell Owens is frustrated with being unwanted. He’s such a joke: http://bit.ly/blbxry

    The current Rockets coach is Rick Adelman and Terrel Owens doesn’t belong in this conversation.
