Re: Greg Oden agrees to join Miami Heat
But the Heat will give the often-injured Oden a chance to reclaim his career. Oden, who hasn't played in a game since December 2009 due to knee problems, was officially signed Wednesday by the team to a two-year, $2.172 million contract, with the second year a player option.
"I am very excited and happy to be here," Oden said. "I'm thankful to the Miami Heat organization for bringing me in and I'm ready to get to work."
Oden, 25, announced last Friday he had chosen the two-time defending champions over San Antonio, Dallas, New Orleans, Atlanta and Sacramento. He came to Miami this week and passed his physical on Tuesday.
