Mario Chalmers re-signs with Miami

Mario Chalmers is returning to the Heat as he tweeted Friday morning.

"Imma MIAMI HEAT player until they don't want me no more. Let's get this ring," he tweeted.

The final details of the deal haven't been worked out as of yet, but Chalmers will report to Heat camp Friday afternoon. Chalmers was a restricted free agent with Miami and will likely enter camp as their starting point guard. The Heat are pretty darn thin at that position, but they don't have to have depth there with both Dwyane Wade and LeBron James handling the ball.

Chalmers averaged 6.8 points and 2.5 assists per game last season but played even better in the postseason. In the NBA Finals he averaged 11.8 points and hit a pretty notable shot in Game 2 that didn't end up mattering, but it was still a big shot.

This is the third guy the Heat have locked up in the past two days with Shane Battier and Eddy Curry signing with Miami on Thursday.
