Udonis Haslem Returns to Miami for Discounted Rate!
Instead of packages from other teams that could have reached $35 million over five seasons, Haslem, 30, said he signed a five-year deal with the Heat, a package that should fall in the $20 million range.
Bosh already has stated a preference not to be cast at center. Despite being listed at 6 feet 8, two inches shorter than Bosh's 6-10 listed height, Haslem said he would have no problem making such a sacrifice for coach Erik Spoelstra.
"I'm sure if that's what Coach Spo wants, we'll have to deal with it, what it takes to make this happen. We've already sacrificed. So why stop sacrificing now?" he said, now standing as the fourth member of the roster to take less than market price in free agency. "I'm sure there are going to be points in the game where Chris and I will be playing together."
WOW!! UD is a true team player.... It's one thing for Wade,LBJ, Bosh to pass on a few millions...they still have their endorsements ect. But for Haslem to leave extra millions on the table per year.... This is a big deal for Miami in filling out their roster. Haslem is the type of player they had to have on their roster.
