College career

House attended Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona where he is the all-time scoring leader with 2,044 points in his career and is the only player to score more than 2,000 points. He, Ike Diogu, and James Harden are the only three Sun Devils to be named Pac-10 Player of the Year and he was the fifth Sun Devil to be voted onto the All-Conference team twice.

He is also the career record holder at Arizona State for field goals and steals and set the single-season scoring average record for the school with 23.0 points per game in 1999-2000. In that season, he was named Pac-10 Player of the Week a record-tying four times (matched only by Ed O'Bannon, Chris Mills, Gary Payton, and Quincy Pondexter).

House set a single-game Arizona State record with a 61-point effort in a 111-108 double-overtime victory against the California Golden Bears on the road in his senior season. It was also a memorable homecoming of sorts for him, as he had starred in high school for nearby Hayward High School. In the game, House also set a record with 18 made free throws in 19 attempts. House is the first Pac-10 player to notch four 40-point games in one season as he had 61 vs. Cal, 46 vs. San Diego State, 42 vs. Penn State and 40 vs. UCLA. He also posted eight 30-point games that same season and set ASU records in points (736) and points per game (23.0). Also led the team in assists (111) and steals (74), as the 74 steals is tied for second on ASU single-season list. He is one of only three players to average in double figures in four consecutive seasons at Arizona State since it joined the Pac-10 (the others being Reggie Jordan and Charles "Bo" Outlaw).

NBA career

House was selected by the Miami Heat in the second round (37th overall) of the 2000 NBA Draft. He played in Miami for 3 seasons before leaving for Los Angeles Clippers on free agency. After just 1 year in Los Angeles, House was traded to the Charlotte Bobcats. He then spent the 2004–05 NBA season playing for Charlotte, Milwaukee Bucks and Sacramento Kings. The following season, House was signed by the Phoenix Suns. He reached the Western Conference Finals before losing to the Dallas Mavericks.

On August 17, 2006, he signed a one-year, $1.5 million deal with the New Jersey Nets.

On August 9, 2007, he signed a one-year, $1.5 million deal with the Boston Celtics.[1][2] He joined a cast of all-stars dubbed as the Big Three, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen. The team successfully won the 2008 NBA Finals with House playing as a backup guard for either Ray Allen or Rajon Rondo. On July 23, 2008, he re-signed with the Celtics on a 2-year, $5.6 million deal, with the second year as player's option.[3][4] During the 2008-09 regular season, he broke Danny Ainge's Celtics team record for best 3-point percentage in a season by shooting 44.4%.[citation needed] In the 2009 playoffs, he scored his career high of 31 points.

On February 18, 2010, House, Bill Walker and J.R. Giddens were traded to the New York Knicks for Nate Robinson and Marcus Landry.[5]

Personal

Eddie was raised primarily in Union City, CA where he attended James Logan High School before later transferring to Hayward High School. He is the son of Edward House and Deborah Buck, and has two brothers, Diallo Buck and Mychal House. During his rookie season with Miami in 2000-01, he married the sister of professional basketball player Mike Bibby. The couple has three sons, Jaelen and twins Kaden and Kalek. His oldest son Jaelen can be seen at most of the Celtics' home games standing with the team or the row behind them. Coincidentally, both Eddie House and Mike Bibby played for the Sacramento Kings in 2004-05.[13]
