Haslem, 39, is one of the best players to put on a Heat jersey. Due to beloved guard Dwyane Wade retiring last season, many people thought the Heat’s all-time leading rebounder would call it quits as well. Afterall, both fan favorites came into the league in 2003 and have seen their roles diminish heavily throughout the years.
However, while Haslem’s best days are behind him, the team wants him around to help mentor, develop, and coach the young guys.
The forward, who is adored by his teammates, is a great middle man between the coaches and youngsters.
The 16-year veteran has career averages of 7.6 points and 6.7 rebounds per game.
