Free agent Mike Miller has agreed a deal with former club Memphis Grizzlie, with reports suggesting he has signed a two-year contract. 

With a number of teams chasing the sharpshooter, Memphis beat off competition from Oklahoma City and Houston to sign Miller after he left the Miami Heat earlier this summer. 

The 33-year-old confirmed the news through the Associated Press, a week on from Miami’s decision to name him their amnesty player after three years with the Heat.

Despite the move, Miller is due to pick up in excess of $12 million in wages from Miami over the next two seasons, however this will not affect the team’s salary cap or luxury tax. 

Miller enjoyed six season with Memphis from 2003 to 2008, before helping the Heat to victory in the last two NBA finals. 

During his 13 year career in the NBA, Miller has averaged 12.3 points, and has a 41 percent success from three point range.
