"If I could, I would," said Adebayo to the Miami Herald, when asked if he'd like to be a Heat player for his entire career.

3-time NBA All-Defensive Second Team selection, Adebayo is due $30.4 million next season in the second year of a five-year, $163 million max contract extension he signed in 2020.

"Just to have that opportunity to be around this community for my whole career. A lot of the community has seen my grown up," said Adebayo.

"Going from a random 14th draft pick to being a cornerstone in this organization and to become something bigger," added Adebayo.

"It's just one of those things that's dope when people grow with you," the Heat center concluded.

Adebayo, who was the 14th overall pick in the 2017 NBA draft spent his entire 5-year NBA career with the Heat. Last season the 25-year-old averaged 19.1 points, 10.1 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 1.4 steals, and 0.8 blocks per game.
