Though his role with the team has diminished in recent years, Haslem is a beloved member of the Heat organization.
The Miami Heat are expecting three-time National Basketball Association champion Udonis Haslem to return for a 17th season of service.
Part of three National Basketball Association championship teams, Haslem has career averages of 7.6 points and 6.7 rebounds in 854 games, ranking as the Heat's all-time leader in rebounds. On Tuesday, Haslem re-signed with the Heat for a one-year minimum contract. That veteran was in fact destined to be the 39-year-old Haslem.
Haslem was an important contributor for all three Heat championships, in 2006, 20012 and 2013.
Haslem has spent his entire career with his hometown team after signing with Miami as an undrafted free agent in 2003.
