Udonis Haslem To Continue Long Tenure With Miami Heat After Signing $2.6 Million One-Year Deal

Although Miami Heat fans saw all–time great Dwyane Wade hang up his monumental kicks after last season’s conclusion, another similarly familiar piece reportedly plans to instead return once October rolls around, as veteran forward Udonis Haslem just inked a veteran’s $2.6 million minimum one-year deal to play again for the Heat next season.

Since signing as an undrafted free agent, Haslem played through 17 NBA seasons and even helped the only team wise enough to take a chance on the Florida product win NBA titles in 2006, 2012 and 2013. Haslem’s return now places him among just six other players to spend as many seasons with one franchise. Those players include either current Hall of Fame members or others certain to join them once eligible, such as Dirk Nowitzki (21 with DAL), Kobe Bryant (20 with LAL), Tim Duncan (19 with SAS) , John Stockton (19 with UTA) and Reggie Miller (18 with IND).

IN MEMORIAM: SPORTS FIGURES WHO DIED IN 2019 TRIBUTE SLIDESHOW

Although last year Haslem played just ten games and averaged only 2.5 points, Heat fans remember him as an effective two–way player during his younger playing days, as he averaged 12 points and and 9 rebounds per game en route to his best campaign during the 2007–08 season.
