Udonis Haslem has been a member of the Miami Heat since LeBron James rookie year in the NBA, before social media was a thing and when the concept of TiVo was relatively new.
He has agreed to a one-year, $2.4 million deal to play his 16th season as a member of the Heat.

Haslem has been in South Beach for all three of the organization’s championships and has been the constant veteran presence for what feels like an eternity.
The next question that everyone is likely to ask now is this: Is Dwyane Wade going to sign next?
Wade is clearly not the player he was even three years ago, but he still has some left in the tank and can help a Miami Heat team trying to take the next step in an eastern conference that is now wide open without LeBron James in it.
I am guessing this will be the last go around for Haslem in a Heat uniform, here’s to hoping we get one more from Wade as well.
