Miami native Udonis Haslem, who began his NBA career with the Heat in 2003, will play for one more season. The three-time NBA champion announced the news on his Instagram account.

As I wrote earlier, Miami’s move to waive Yante Maten may have foreshadowed Haslem’s return. Heat President Pat Riley said that he was proud to welcome Haslem back.
