Ira Winderman is reporting that Udonis Haslem has turned down "far larger deals" from Dallas and Denver in order to return to Miami. This is great news! Udonis would be getting much more money to play elsewhere because the Heat has limited resources (for obvious reasons) but he is taking the same road that his good friend Dwyane Wade went down.
Udonis is Miami, Fl born and raised, and now has an opportunity to stay in a community that adores him (and will even more now) while playing for what could be one of the best NBA teams ever. Use this as your official 'Udonis Returns' thread. I'll have more on this later tonight.
4:10- Udonis in an e-mail to the Sun-Sentinel: "Turned down full mid level from Dallas and Denver. See u next season."
4:50- The deal will be for 5-years and around $20 million. Said Udonis: "I would be changing my DNA if I left just for money."
