Udonis Haslem scored 10 points on 5 of 5 shooting in the third quarter, finishing with 16 and playing as well as he did in Game 3.

The Miami Heat continued filling out the roster Monday with the signing of long-time Heat forward Udonis Haslem to a new contract, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel’s Ira Winderman.

Haslem’s signing came just hours after the team re-signed Dwyane Wade on a two-year contract. Wade took an $8 million pay cut and Haslem also saw his pay cut this year with the Heat.

According to Winderman, the Heat will use a “room” exception to sign Haslem to a two-year contract for $2.7 million in the first season with a 4.5 percent raise in the second season.

Haslem appeared in just 46 games last season with 18 starts. He averaged 3.8 points and 3.8 rebounds per game while shooting better than 50 percent from the field. For his career, Haslem averages 8.6 points and 7.5 rebounds per game.

Haslem turned 34 in June and may be on his final NBA contract, depending on his production over the next two years.

The Heat has used just two long-term contracts on players it has re-signed this offseason. The Heat gave Chris Bosh a 5-year deal and Josh McRoberts a four-year contract. The Heat will also likely keep Shabazz Napier under contract for three seasons at least.

Currently, the Heat is scheduled to wipe away Dwyane Wade’s $15 million salary, Luol Deng’s $10 million salary, and more at the end of the 2015 season.
