  • Heat Sign Udonis Haslem To 1 Year $2.4 Million

    Udonis Haslem sticking with Heat on one-year deal

    MIAMI -- Udonis Haslem is barely given the chance to play anymore, and the Heat wanted him back anyway.

    That's how much they value his presence.

    A person with knowledge of the negotiations said Haslem and the Heat have agreed to a one-year, $2.4 million contract that will keep him with his hometown team for a 16th season.

    Haslem's on-court role has been limited over the past three years. He appeared in only 14 games last season, all off the bench, and he hasn't played more than 20 minutes in any game since Jan. 1, 2017.

    Haslem has played with 126 Heat teammates, not even counting those players who were signed for training camps and never actually appeared in a regular-season or playoff game. His return for a 16th year means that he has now been with the franchise for more than half its history; the Heat had played 15 seasons before he signed with them in 2003.

    For his career, Haslem has averaged 7.7 points and 6.8 rebounds per game. He was a starter on the Heat championship clubs in 2006, 2012 and 2013.
