MIAMI (AP) -- Eddie House's agent says the veteran guard has agreed to terms on a $2.8 million, two-year contract with the Miami Heat.
Agent Mark Bartelstein said Thursday that the second year is a player option.
House was a second-round draft pick by the Heat in 2000 and spent his first three NBA seasons with them. He has since played for eight other teams, including Boston and New York last season, when he averaged 7.0 points in 68 games off the bench.
His career average is 7.6 points, and he's a 39-percent shooter from 3-point range, with a reputation for making clutch baskets.
House will be a strong contender for a reserve role as part of the Heat's supporting cast for Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh.
