The Memphis Grizzlies have agreed a deal to re-sign sharpshooter Mike Miller, ESPN have reported.
The 33-year-old, who previously played for the Grizzlies between 2003 and 2008, has agreed a two-year deal with his former team, which he confirmed himself.
Miller had been a free agent after being released by the Miami Heat earlier this month, and he also attracted interest from the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Houston Rockets.
It is thought that his main reason for signing for the Grizzlies is the opportunity of getting into the NBA Finals, as well as being an environment he is familiar with.
He had been scheduled to meet with the Rockets on Friday, but he has already made up his mind, despite also considering an offer from the Denver Nuggets.
Miller won consecutive championships with the Heat in 2012 and 2013, and his shooting percentage of 61% from three-point range in the Finals last season were an important part of his team’s success, despite only averaging 4.8 points in the regular season.
