Brad Miller has signed with the Houston Rockets, reuniting the 7-foot center with coach Rick Adelman.

Miller signed a three-year, $15 million contract to back up Yao Ming, who is expected to be ready for next season after sitting out a year to recover from foot surgery.

General manager Daryl Morey says Miller fills a "huge need" for his team. Miller hopes to get solid minutes at center to help make things "a little bit easier" on Yao.

Miller spent last season with Chicago and played for Adelman from 2003-2006 when he coached the Sacramento Kings.
