MIAMI (AP) — Mike Miller has signed his five-year contract with the Miami Heat, joining LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh to chase a championship.

Miller announced it on Twitter, saying "It's official" and thanking Heat owner Micky Arison and team president Pat Riley.

The 6-foot-8 sharpshooter becomes the latest player to take less money than he could have made elsewhere to play for the Heat. James, Wade, Bosh and Udonis Haslem all left millions on the bargaining table in order to ensure the Heat would have flexibility to sign players like Miller.

Terms were not immediately disclosed, but Miller's deal was expected to be worth around $25 million.
