Udonis Haslem Says 2019-20 Will Be Final Season If Teammates Send Him Off the ‘Right Way’

Despite strongly leaning towards retirement several months ago, Udonis Haslem signed a one-year, $2.6 million contract to remain with the Miami Heat for his 17th season.

He has seemingly seen and done it all – played on Heat teams that were amongst the worst in the league, lived through a couple of rebuilding projects and celebrated three NBA championships.

But will the 2019-20 season will be the swan song for the longtime Heat big man?

“You have to ask my teammates if this is my last season. It’s up to those guys,” Haslem said. “If they send me out the right way, you don’t have to worry about me no more. But if they don’t take care of business, then I might be back again answering the same question again next year, ‘Is this your last dance?’ So it’s up to the guys. For me, I just want to get the most out of my guys, and I want these guys to have an amazing, amazing season.”

With the retirement of Dirk Nowitzki, Haslem now holds the NBA high for most consecutive seasons with one team among active players.
