San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

Heat re-sign Udonis Haslem


Much like Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and LeBron James (if he so decided), when Udonis Haslem opted out of the final year of his contract with the Heat, it wasn’t to pursue options anywhere else.

Haslem left $4.6 million on the table to give his team the flexibility to pay him more money in total over more seasons, while freeing up some additional space in the present to add talent to the roster.

His deal in Miami has now been secured for the next two seasons.

The Miami Heat re-signed longtime forward Udonis Haslem to a new contract Friday.

The team did not announce terms of the deal, but sources told it is for the room midlevel exception of two years and $5.5 million.

Haslem wasn’t going anywhere. He’s played all 11 of his NBA seasons in Miami, and while his on-court role there has diminished in recent years, his veteran leadership is valued by the organization, and he’s been professional enough to maintain his readiness for whenever his number is called.

Bradley Beal drives around, dunks over Kristaps Porzingis (VIDEO)

If you’re a Knicks fan, the positive is that at least Kristaps Porzingis tried to make a play.

But he was not going to stop the athletic Bradley Beal with a full head of steam, and the result was a Beal dunking over Porzingis as he tries to block the attempt.

Beal wasn’t sharp, scoring 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting. The Knicks has an efficient Carmelo Anthony and that got them the win.
