Miller: Deal Is Done

0 comments

Andre Miller, the 76ers' unrestricted free agent, officially signed with the Portland Trail Blazers just before 7 tonight.

Miller had agreed to terms earlier in the day, but Blazers general manager Kevin Pritchard waited until the deal was finalized before releasing the information.

The Blazers did not release length of term or dollar figures, but ESPN is reporting a three-year contract worth $21 million, with $14 million guaranteed in the first two years and the rest in a non-guaranteed third year. Miller earned $10.3 million with the Sixers last season.

In a statement, Pritchard said ''We are excited to add a player of the caliber and character of Andre Miller. He is one of the league's iron men who brings a wealth of veteran leadership to our team and is a great fit for our young and improving roster.''
