Dwyane Wade Reacts to Udonis Haslem Re-Signing With Miami Heat
- Updated: August 7, 2019
It wasn’t long before longtime teammate Dwyane Wade took to social media to give him some love.

Haslem, a 6-foot-8, 235-pound big man, was undrafted when he came out of the University of Florida in 2002. After spending one season playing in France, he joined the Heat for the 2003-04 season, and has been with the team ever since.
In his storied NBA career, Haslem has posted averages of 7.6 points and 6.7 rebounds per game while being a member of three championship teams.
He has been relegated to mostly backup duty at center in recent seasons, but his experience and veteran leadership are invaluable to a Miami team that is looking to once again make waves in the regular season and beyond.
