The Memphis Grizzlies and veteran Mike Miller are together again.
The team officially announced the signing Tuesday of Miller, who spent the previous three seasons with the Miami Heat. Terms weren't disclosed, as per team policy. The sharpshooter still owns eight major franchise records accumulated during his five-plus seasons in Memphis from 2002-08.
"We are extraordinarily pleased to welcome Mike Miller back to Memphis," Grizzlies Chief Executive Officer Jason Levien said in a statement. "Mike is a special figure in our community due to his contributions both on and off the court. Mike is an elite three-point shooter, as Grizzlies fans know first-hand, and we expect his shooting, play-making, hustle and leadership to be a key component in our team competing with the best in the NBA next season."
The 33-year-old helped the Heat to three straight NBA Finals and won back-to-back championships in 2012 and 2013, including a 23-point performance in the championship-clinching Game 5 against the Oklahoma City Thunder in the 2012 Finals.
While with Memphis, Miller averaged 14.6 points, 4.9 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game from 2002-08. He is the franchise leader three-point field goal percentage (.415), three-point field goals made (737) and attempted (1,778). He also holds the single-season franchise record for three-point percentage (.433 in 2004-05) and three-pointers made and attempted (202 and 498 in 2006-07).
