Report: Udonis Haslem Says He Could Return for Another Season With Miami Heat
- Updated: October 1, 2019
Haslem said there was no agreement among, himself, Pat Riley and Nick Arison about this being his last season. Not saying if this will be last season. But said he needs to be better in his role, not let things slide that happened last yr

Haslem, 39, is the heart and soul of the Heat. With franchise icon Dwyane Wade officially retired, most of the organization’s culture, values and DNA is stored within Haslem.
Despite his eagerness to stay in the league, the big man has been more of a spectator than contributor on the floor in recent years. In fact, the 6-foot-8 power forward put up just 2.5 points and 2.7 rebounds in a career-low 10 games last season.
Yet, the three-time champion has still had a tremendous impact on the team. The veteran has been a strong voice and mentor to many of the younger players on the team, including rising stars Justise Winslow and Bam Adebayo.
If this upcoming season does prove to be his last, chances are good he wouldn’t be gone for long. It seems an open spot on Miami’s coaching staff is waiting for him when he does end up retiring.
The 2019-20 regular season kicks off in just a few weeks.
