Greg Oden passes physical, officially joins Miami Heat

Greg Oden is signed, sealed and delivered.

After Oden passed his team physical earlier this week, the Miami Heat announced Wednesday that the injury-plagued center is now under contract.

Oden, who agreed to terms Friday, signed a two-year, $2.1 million contract that pays the veteran minimum of $1 million this season, with a player option for 2014-15.

Upon adding Oden, the Heat issued a quote from the center that read, “I am very excited and happy to be here. I’m thankful to the Miami Heat organization for bringing me in and I’m ready to get to work.”

In a statement, Heat President Pat Riley said, “After many months of discussion, evaluations and speaking with Greg, we felt it was the perfect time for him to make his comeback and re-enter the NBA with the Miami Heat.”
