MIAMI — A person familiar with the situation says Greg Oden has told the Miami Heat that he will accept their contract offer.

It ends months of suspense that saw several NBA teams line up for a chance to sign the former No. 1 pick whose career has been derailed by a series of knee problems.

The Heat had been widely believed to be the frontrunners to land Oden for some time, and now get to add a 7-footer to a team that’s won the last two NBA championships.
