While he may be considered a journeyman, Eddie House managed to churn out a lengthy 11 seasons in the NBA, playing for nine different teams along the way.

The first of those franchises was the one he had the longest tenure with—the Miami Heat.

The 6-foot-1 guard was selected by Miami in the second round with the 37th overall pick during the 2000 NBA Draft. House played in 169 games during a three-year stint with the Heat, managing 7 points in 16 minutes per contest.

He would sign with the Los Angeles Clippers ahead of the 2003-04 campaign, and started in 10 of the 60 games he played in, but was traded to the Charlotte Bobcats ahead of the 2004-05 season.

After just appearing in 13 games for the Bobcats, he was shipped to the Milwaukee Bucks midseason. He appeared in just five games with them before begin traded to the Sacramento Kings, where he played in 50 games.

Despite playing for three different teams that year, he shot a career-best 45.4 percent from the three-point line.

House wouldn't settle during the offseason, signing with the Phoenix Suns for one year. In the offseason, he would once again join a new roster, signing with then-New Jersey Nets for a season.

Ahead of the 2007-08 season, House signed with the Boston Celtics, who at the time had just formed the ‘Big Three' of forwards Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett, and guard Ray Allen.

House spent two full seasons with the Celtics, helping them capture the 2008 NBA title. During the 2009-10 season, at 31 years old, he was traded to the New York Knicks midseason.

In his final test of free agency, House re-signed with the Miami Heat on a two-year deal. He was waived during the second year of the contract, marking the end of his NBA career.
