Udonis Haslem announces new deal with Miami Heat, will return for 20th season

Udonis Haslem announced that he will sign a new deal with the Miami Heat and return for his 20th NBA season.

The Heat gave Haslem the option to return for a 20th season if he was interested. He was a valuable on-court contributor early in his career, starting 52 of Miami’s 66 postseason games during the club’s championship runs in 2006, 2012 and 2013.

In 872 regular season games, Haslem holds an average of 7.5 points per game, 6.6 rebounds per game while shooting 48.9 percent from the floor and 75.6 percent from the line.

Over the past few seasons, Haslem has played less than 16 games in a year and has served as a veteran mentor and leader to the team.
