"I know for sure I've got two years in me," Haslem said. "Two years ago I had to come in and play -- Hassan Whiteside, Bird [Chris Andersen], everybody was out. I gave solid minutes, played well. This year we were in the playoffs -- Game 6 in Charlotte. I can be ready in those type of situations for a couple years."

Haslem, who turned 36 on June 9, has played his entire 12-year NBA career with the Heat and management will probably offer him a new low-dollar deal in July.

Haslem made 37 appearances this season and averaged 7.0 minutes, 1.6 points and 2.0 rebounds.
