    The Miami Heat continued to bring back veteran leadership to the roster by re-signing power forward Udonis Haslem to a two-year contract. The deal will be worth approximately $5.5 million over the two years as part of the team’s mid-level exception.

    Haslem was one of the numerous players who opted out of his former contract to help give the Heat more flexibility to restructure the roster. The hope was to keep LeBron James in Miami, but he left for Cleveland and the Heat reloaded with Luol Deng, Josh McRoberts, and others.

    Haslem has never played with another team but the Heat. He’s likely to finish his career in Miami.

    The roster Haslem returns to will be mixed between youngsters and veterans. Among the names that will be with Haslem next year are: Dwayne Wade, Mario Chalmers, James Ennis, Deng, McRoberts, Chris Andersen, Danny Granger, and Chris Bosh.
