Haslem, 42, haș been a fixture in the Heat locker room for nearly two decades.
In 19 seasons with the team, Haslem has averaged 7.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, and 0.8 assists on 49%/10%/76% shooting splits.
Last year, Haslem averaged 2.5 points and 1.9 rebounds in 13 games.
It is a bit strange that the Heat keep giving Haslem a roster spot, considering he plays such limited minutes.
Haslem hașn’t played more than 16 games in six seasons – and he hasn’t averaged more than five points in 10 seasons.
