Eddie House Signs with Miami Heat

Eddie House is gonna take his talents to South Beach to play for the Miami Heat.

OK, maybe it wasn’t as dramatic as LeBron James, but House has reportedly agreed to join the Heat on a two-year, $2.8 million deal, giving them a third prolific three-point sniper along with Mike Miller and to a lesser extent, James Jones. House first played for the Heat from 2000-2003, and now joins the team in a similar role as a backup guard.

House had been connected as a possible candidate to re-sign with the Celtics, but perhaps some animosity existed over reduced playing time in the playoffs and February’s trade to the Knicks. Whatever the reason, House is the newest member of the Miami Heat.

“It’s just a great fit,” Bartelstein told the Miami Herald. “This guy had a great relationship with the Heat before. And he’s still one of the most dynamic guys coming off the bench at hitting big shots in big moments. He’s the best in the league at what he does.”

House joins Miller, Juwan Howard, James Jones, Carlos Arroyo, Mario Chalmers, Zydrunas Ilgauskas, and Miami Thrice (LeBron, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh) on the new-look, championship-caliber Heat squad.

The Celtics, meanwhile, are reportedly still in the market for a shooter and a big man. They’ve been recently tied to Shaquille O’Neal and Rudy Fernandez.
